Dragflicker Sandeep Singh converted two penalty corners to help India inflict a 3-1 defeat on England in their second practice match ahead of the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi on Tuesday.

Beside Sandeep, Tushar Khandekar chipped in with a field goal, while Ashley Jackson sounded the board for England at the Major Dhyan Chand national stadium.

Last Sunday, India had defeated England by a similar margin in their first practice match at the same venue.

India is placed with Australia, Malaysia, Pakistan and Scotland in Group A. England, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and Trinidad and Tobago form Group B.

The Commonwealth Games will be held from October 3 to 14 in the capital.
