It was England who had a total of 10 circle entries inside the first quarter but they could not be efficient as they took only four shots.
India, on the other hand, kept pushing for a counter-attack, which saw them having only four circle entries in their opposition's striking circle. They took only two shots in the first quarter, the second of which turned out to be the opening goal of the match which was scored by Lakra.
However, India's efforts on goal were either saved or blocked by the English defence.
In the later phase of the quarter, it was the England who controlled proceedings as they were constantly threatening to find the equaliser, however, India's defence was resolute and kept all of England's four shots out to go into the half-time with a 1-0 lead.
The English attack struck to their task in the final quarter and earned themselves another penalty stroke in the 52nd minute.
It was Gleghorne who showed his calm and experience as he beat India's young goalkeeper Krishan Pathak to find the equaliser for his team with eight minutes to play.
India was defeated by Argentina in the opening match of the tournament and will next face Australia in their third match on March 6. (ANI)
