Car Accident Advice - Who's wrong?

So I had a car accident yesterday and was wondering if I could get some insight.
So a bit of context. This is a road with no lane markings, but it is EASILY wide enough for two cars. If you go to this road at anytime of the day, there is ALWAYS cars in both lanes despite no lane markings. Even the satellite view shows 2 cars driving side by side at this intersection.
From my point of view, I was sticking to the left side of this road while the other car was on the right side of the road. I indicate early to turn left, and proceed to do so. At the last second, he starts indicating left and then turns as well (but this is kinda hard to prove! Should've invested in a dashcam). Thus, we crash into each other.
This is the main thing, why would you stick to the MOST right side of the lane if you are turning left?!?! To me, it seems like he changed his mind last second and maybe if he indicated earlier, I would've seen him and given way. I personally believe he should've checked his mirrors or done a shoulder check before turning left.
The damages are minor but it is clear from the dents, that at the time of accident, my car was in front of his but only by like 30cm or so.
Here is a quick sketch of the incident:
Thanks in advance :)
