India wasted a two-goal advantage to draw 3-3 against hosts Malaysia in their last inconsequential round-robin match of the Sultan of Johor Cup U-21 hockey tournament here on Saturday.

India finished on top of the standings and the result of the tie didn’t matter as both teams had already qualified for Sunday’s final.

India went 2-0 up with a goal each from Satbir Singh, and Ramandeep Singh before Malaysia netted thrice —Shahril Saabah (2) and skipper Fitrii
Saari. India’s Affan Yousof made it 3-3.
