New Delhi, Oct 14: Over the last week Indian hockey team has managed to attract thousands into the Delhi Commonwealth stadiums with their electrifying performance. As the team gears up for the final bout against World Champions, Australia, news comes in of a very special guest attending the match - the Prime Minister.
