The Indian women's team's three-match winning streak at the World League Round 2 ended with a 2-3 (2-2) loss via tie-breaker to a higher-ranked Japan at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium here yesterday.

India performed miserably in the penalty shoot-out despite making a brilliant comeback from two goals down in the last 10 minutes of the regulation time to equalise through Soundarya Yendala (62nd) and Anupa Barla (65th).

Chanchan Devi, Ritu Rani and Vandana Kataria missed in the shoot-out while Soundarya Yendala and Rani Rampal were on target.
