There is no doubt that we were not completely controlled in those two and a half minutes. But in this, we do not have to completely change our attitude towards the game because the team did well in the entire tournament. We also suffered the brunt of not playing well, but during the entire tournament many things were positive and it is also important to see India’s performance during the Champions Trophy where they had done well against the high ranking teams. “
Before the Asian Champions Trophy to be held from October 18 to 28 in Muscat, Oman, the team camp is being held at the Kalinga Hockey Stadium here.
