Coaches call for regular Indo-Pak series

Written by: Staff

Lahore, Feb 27 (UNI) Indian coach Rajinder Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Asif Bajwa have called for regular hockey series between the two sides as it would help revive the Asian hockey scene.

Speaking after the conclusion of the six-match home and away series yesterday, which Pakistan won 3-1, both the coaches expressed the view that regular competition between the two countries would also promote the Asian style of play and provide match practice to the players ahead of important tournaments.

''It would help revive the sagging fortunes of the game in the sub continent and bring spectators back to the hockey grounds,'' Bajwa said.

His views were echoed by the Indian coach, who supported the proposal and said that even junior tournaments between the two archrivals would help the game's cause.

Earlier, the last match between the two sides was drawn 3-3, sealing the series in favour of the hosts who made a clean sweep in the three encounters played in India.
