India and England settled for a draw in the second match at the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup on Sunday after coming into the match with defeats in their respective opening rounds. Shilanand Lakra and Mark Gleghorne scored in the first and last quarter of the match to earn their sides a point each. Even though India played a good defensive game, the men in blue failed to capitalise on multiple penalty corners that proved costly to them in the end. India went down 3-2 on Saturday against Rio Olympic champions Argentina while England were thrashed 4-1 by Australia. India are fielding a young team as key players like Akashdeep Singh, SV Sunil, Mandeep Singh, Manpreet Singh and PR Sreejesh were rested for the tournament.
