India have started in fine style..First they bent over Singapore and gave the karad pudi kolu treatment....15-1...Singaporeans needed 3 private water tankers after the match.

Today India blasted Italy 8-1...I hope they mercilessly crush all their opponents...

Winner of this tounament gets the last seat to the London Olympics Hockey event..Last time India lost a chance to play at Beijing...this time they should go back to the olympics.

Karnataka players especially from Kodagu and Punjab state players are backbone of Indian Hockey..

In Kodagu if parents have 2 sons then one son will be sent to army and other one to play Hockey !! :amen:

Arjun hallappa was best and what happened to the league which used to play some years ago like IPL i used to watch that full game in STAR Sports il think We reached to the finals that time..

In cricket, we have around 8-9 test playing nations who are default selects for world cups..

Is there a similar funda in hockey too? Indian team was too good in hockey few years back..

Mostly it will be India - Canada in the finals...India has to win to go to the Olympics.....I hope they dont lose like last time where they lost to Great Britain and missed the Beijing bus. We are kind of the chokers in hockey.
 
Halappa was captain few months back.

It was Drag flicker Jugraj Sigh who met with an accident years ago... Sandeep singh replaced him and now he is one of the best drag flick specialist. jugraj was my fav he was such an awesome talent

Different tournament winners get slots in the Hockey Olympics event. Currently India has to win the Qualifying championship-1 to enter. Pakistan qualified by winning Asian games.

Dabba Great Britain who defeated us last time in a similar tournament this time enter as the hosts.
