India had to come from behind to rescue a point and keep their World Cup dream alive as they played out a 1-1 draw at the Salt Lake Stadium on Tuesday.

They were not allowed to carry certain banners that were specially made for the IND vs BAN game. However, they still did enough to ensure the men in blue received enough backing throughout the 90 minutes.
