India staged a strong fightback to hold Malaysia 1-1 in their opening match in the men's hockey competition at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne on Friday morning.

In a keen contest that saw both teams fail to take advantage of the chances that came their way, it was the Indians who held a slight edge but were unable to convert it into goals.
