Here is the analysis of all the matches which India played in the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup 2018.
The world's top-ranked team finished the tournament, which included Commonwealth Games opponents England, Malaysia and India, with six wins from six games. Amit Rohidas scored the goal to give India 2-1 lead at half time.
Mitton came close moments later, before Kleinschmidt levelled in the 25th minute with a reflex finish after Dylan Wotherspoon's baseline run forced a save from Argentine keeper Juan Vivaldi.
A foot foul by Dipsan Tirkey saw India concede a PC only 15 seconds prior to the half-time hooter but Suraj Karkera was on top of his job to save the PC.
