Karachi, Mar.7 (ANI): Disappointed over his team's deplorable performance in the ongoing Hockey World Cup in New Delhi, Pakistan hockey captain Zeeshan Ashraf has apologised to the nation for its poor show.
Pakistan's dream of making it to the semi final of the tournament were shattered on Saturday when it was defeated by minnows South Africa 4-3.
It may be noted that Australia had crushed South Africa 12-0 in a league match of the tournament a couple of days ago.
Talking to Geo News over telephone from New Delhi, Ashraf apologised for the pitiable performance, and promised an improved effort in future assignments.
For Pakistan, the 1994 World Champions, this World Cup has turned to be the worst, as the side has won only one game against Spain.
It had also lost its opening match against arch-rivals India 4-1. (ANI)
