The team is shaping up well: Sardar Singh

Captain Sardar Singh believes that the team is shaping well for the upcoming World League Semifinals and the new plan of augmenting the midfield will help them in stemming the counter-attacks from the opponents.

“The team is shaping up well in the last few practice sessions. Our new game plan of 10 attacking and 10 defending gives the extra boost to the mid-field position, as this will help in countering the counter-attacks from the opponents,” Sardar said.

“We are even working on our speed as we realise that this new strategy will work in our favour only if we keep pace with each other and not miss the vital passes.”

Ready to go
India is placed in Pool A with Australia, Pakistan, France and Poland. Sardar said they were looking forward to the games against World Champions Australia and arch-rivals Pakistan and beating them will be special.

"The boys are waiting to meet Australia and Pakistan. While playing against Australia, we deliver our best hockey, and playing against Pakistan is always something we look forward to and a win against them will be very special," he said Sardar.
