India produced another inspiring performance to beat Great Britain 2-1 in the FIH hockey Champions Trophy in London on Saturday.
This was the first win for India of the tournament after they drew 3-3 against Germany on Friday.
India took the lead through Mandeep Singh in the 17th minute. In the second half, Harmanpreet Singh converted a penalty stroke to make it 2-0 in the 34th minute.
Ashley Jackson pulled one back for his team in the next minute. But India held onto the 2-1 lead till the end of the match.
After two matches, India have 4 points and are currently at the top of the table.
Earlier, Olympic champions Germany rallied from a two-goal deficit to secure a 4-4 draw with Belgium in the earlier game, which was disrupted by heavy showers that left the field water-logged.
Play was stopped for half an hour midway through the Germany-Belgium match, until the water on the turf was swept away.
