Anupa Barla and Vandana Katariya found the back of the net as India's women hockey team drew against Chile 2-2 in a closely-fought practice match ahead of Hockey World League Round 2, at West Vancouver on Sunday.

Chile started aggressively as Agustina Venegas struck a brilliant field goal in the 18th minute to take a 1-0 lead.

Barla then came responsibly to score an equaliser for India in the 35th minute via a penalty corner. 

Motivated by the move, Katariya gave India a 2-0 lead after scoring a stunning field goal in the 36th minute.

Chile bounced back in the 53rd minute as Venegas netted her second goal, this time through a PC, to help them draw the hard-fought clash.

In the next practice match, India will face Canada before finally stepping in to the 2017 World League Round 2 campaign, where they will play Uruguay first in their Pool A encounter.
