Both teams take immense confidence in teams.
Before leaving the Gold Coast, the big claims proved to be hollow.
Although both men’s and women’s teams made it to the semi-finals, the weakness of changing the penalty corners in the first and then the field was consistent.

It is also understandable to not give the veteran Sardar Singh a place in the team.
At any rate, Indian athletes have shown that they were ready for weightlifting, wrestling, shooting, badminton, table tennis and boxing. Needing more attention in athletics and hockey
