India failed to take their chances in the second half. Robin Singh, in particular, was had a couple of glaring opportunities. St Kitts played some good football midway through the second half and got a deserved equaliser. 

Thus, India's nine-match winning streak comes to an end. That's all from us here. Good bye and good night!

We are ready for the second half.
