Cape Town - The South Africa women’s hockey team and India drew the second Test 2-2 at Hartleyvale in Cape Town Sunday after India had led 2-1 at half-time.

The result leaves India 1-0 winners in the two-Test series, this after they won the first Test 1-0 on Saturday.

This Test series formed the opening leg of the Private Property Summer Series, which features 10 men’s and women’s Test matches in Cape Town and Stellenbosch from this weekend to Saturday, March 5.

SA struck first Sunday when Marizen Marais, in her second Test match, scored a field goal in the third minute. India equalised six minutes from half-time (24th) when Gurjit Kaur netted from a penalty corner (PC).

Two minutes later (26th) India took a 2-1 lead when Grace Deep Ekka scored from a PC.

SA drew level four minutes after half-time through Dirkie Chamberlain’s field goal for the 2-2 final score.

Saturday, India’s Deepika scored the lone goal of the first Test via a PC five minutes from the end (55th).

The Private Property Summer series continues Wednesday at Hartleyvale when the SA women tackle Scotland at 6pm.

The SA women's team face Scotland in a three-Test series and Germany in a two-Test series.

The SA men's team take on Germany in a three-Test series, the lads in green and gold kicking off their campaign against the reigning Olympic Games champions on Friday.
