BUENOS AIRES: The Indian women's hockey team played out a 2-2 draw against Argentina in its second match of the tour to the South American country here.

The first half of the match on Tuesday witnessed India opening the score in the 27th minute via Monika's backhand strike.

Argentina equalised four minutes into the second half through Delfina Merino before captain Ritu Rani put India on top again in the 44th minute.

The match came to even with Delfina marking Argentina's second goal in the 56th minute.

"It was an important match for us as the team was playing with one of the leading international teams. The girls played very well," India chief coach Neil Hawgood said in a release.
