I appreciate the Views of Indian coach that Indian team played with their brain and not emotions, thats the correct approach to win everywhere. Let game be played like game, follow scientific approach and tackle the opposition, exploit their weaknesses and do it in an unemotional way. Whether you are playing against anyteam , approach should be same.Congratulations to team and big appreciation to coach. Please keep it up. Col Virendra
Re: Victory against Pakistan in world cup Hockey

When asked Rajpal Singh, Indian captain, on last Friday about their preparation for match against Pakistan. Rajpal replied that our target is World Cup, not match against Pakistan.
He is true. Otherwise the score would not had been so convincing at 4-1.
Meanwhile Harbhajan Singh was the first and only Indian cricketer expressing his joy and sending congratulatory note to Indian Hockey team on victory in first match.
Stop Minister Chavan from poisoning our food Bt Brinjal could be back because science and technology minister Prithviraj Chavan is trying to change the rules of the game. Mr. Chavan pushed for Bt Brinjal in a letter he copied word for word from a study funded by biotech seed companies, including Monsanto. He is presenting an undemocratic GM bill to ease the legalisation of Bt Brinjal, rice, and more—without any public input. Mr. Chavan is supposed to serve the people of India. Instead, he’s serving the interests of biotech seed corporations. Sign the petition asking the Prime Minister to stop Minister Chavan from poisoning our food. The petition says: “Minister Chavan has betrayed the public trust by doing the dirty work of biotech giants. The Prime Minister should throw out Chavan’s corrupt GM bill.” sign the petition at GREENPEACE dot IN website
In-form Shivendra Singh has been slapped a three-match suspension for deliberately hitting a Pakistani player last night and the Indian team management on Monday appealed to the World Cup tournament director against the suspension.
And guess who India is playing next? Australia. Why am I not surprised? Is it sheer luck for Aus, or did one of the kangaroos bring this up with the IHF?
I think what the coach has highlighted is quite right that we use our brians as against emotions while dealing with our neighbours(not just in sports. There is certainly a lesson for the administration, politicians and people in general. I think we have too much leeway to our neighbours and thats why people like Hafiz Saed are blatantly exploiting the situtation. Rather than asking Pak to arrest him(which will only fall on deaf ears) we have got to deal with him in our way.
amazing how a single controversy united this team ....credit goes to Jose Brassa with input from Ric Charlesworth who quickly recognized the strength and weakness of the team and reformed them into a stable unit and getting rid of the latent groups in the team... SAndip Singh is damn talented...hope the guys do really well and win the cup :) that could very well mean the revival of the sport in our country
After the way the Pak delegation behaved at the recent secretary level talks, this was the perfect victory every Indian wanted. It was like spraying salt into Pak's wounds. The delegation acted like a bunch of unprincipled crooks and they deserve this defeat, 100%.
