HOCKEY AND PAKISTAN

By Farkleet Khalid

Everyone knows that the Pakistan Hockey team has failed to qualify for Tokyo Olympics 2020.

Pakistan, once having a strong hockey team (1947-2013) is now struggling to qualify in major tournaments. It is also because of irresponsible behavior from the Government of Pakistan. The government is not providing enough facilities to the players to train.

Pakistan the number 1 side in hockey, is now number 17. It is such a shame that countries like Japan and China are able to qualify for major tournaments but Pakistan is not. Even Malaysia has now become a great side as they reach number 11.

Let’s hope that in the next four years, Government of Pakistan will take such steps to bring back glory of Pakistan Hockey , as our county still have so much young talent, available all across of Pakistan. All we need is commitment of rulers with this National Game.
