underwhelming sixth in the World League semifinals in London (PTI) Top News At the start of every international season Canadian hockey players pool in anything between $10000-15000 each In a country where hockey generally means the ice variation funding for the field game is minimal The team has to fund its journey till they secure a spot at the Olympics or World Cup The government chips in only after they qualify The opposite is the case with India A country with a history of eight Olympic gold medals hardly has to struggle for resources and government support But although the team has made undeniable strides in recent times it invariably comes up short at the big events This trend was brought painfully to the fore when the unfancied Canadians put one across their more hyped opponents in London on Sunday a victory which assumed great significance for the North American team When Mumbai-born-Ontario-bred Keegan Pereira smashed home Canada’s equaliser against India in the fifth-place playoff of the Hockey World League it was understandable why the celebrations were so wild The 3-2 win ensured them a spot at next year’s World Cup in Bhubaneswar and with it hundreds of thousands in government funding It was not the first time an unlikely team had celebrated at India’s expense in the tournament A couple of days earlier Malaysia sealed its World Cup spot by beating India The South-East Asians fast becoming India’s bogey team in knockout matches stunned their much-fancied continental rivals in the quarterfinals to book their Bhubaneswar berth The win would’ve been a vindication of sorts for Malaysia’s high-performance director Terry Walsh who was sacked as India’s coach in 2015 following differences with then Hockey India president Narinder Batra But the result would be sweeter even for Malaysia Earlier this month the Batra-led International Hockey Federation (FIH) shunned them out of its new pro league saying they weren’t exciting or high-profile enough to fit into the elite nine-team format Apart from India Malaysia is the only other Asian country where hockey is still thriving But it wasn’t enough for the FIH For the underdogs beating India and qualifying for the World Cup was a statement of intent On the other hand the only statement India made during the tournament was political Hockey India (HI) urged the players to wear black armbands for the match against Pakistan to condemn the terrorist attacks on the Army Coupled with emphatic twin wins over what is seen as the weakest Pakistan team ever HI tried to put some positive spin on an otherwise embarrassing fortnight But even that wasn’t enough to paper over the cracks Chief coach Roelant Oltmans whose selections are under scrutiny was livid at the players “Our boys have to understand that beating Pakistan is not enough… Until we can beat the big teams like Holland and Malaysia we will go nowhere Pakistan is not a yardstick” he said Prioritising Malaysia over Pakistan shows how the status quo in the continent has changed That perhaps was the only new thing we learnt about the team For all the talk about making rapid improvement over the last 18-or-so months India seem to have gone back to square one Its struggles against big teams in big tournaments have continued What is alarming is the team’s increasing inability to beat teams they usually did without breaking a sweat In London it was Canada and Malaysia At the Azlan Shah Cup in April Malaysia defeated India while at the Olympics last year Canada held them to a 1-1 draw The result meant India got a tough quarterfinal opponent in Belgium who defeated them 3-1 It’s tempting to dismiss these results as aberrations like they did when Belgium defeated them in the final of 2011 Champions Challenge That match in Johannesburg was the turning point in the India-Belgium rivalry and the Europeans have had the upper hand ever since India’s damage is self-inflicted There is a pattern to most of the matches they have lost against these opponents The collective improvement in the standard of fitness allows the team to play a high-press game They like keeping the ball passing around quickly and playing long diagonal crosses inside the ‘D’ looking for deflections But against organised defences who employ man-to-man marking they have struggled primarily because they fail to execute their game plan Under pressure they revert to the age-old habit of making long aimless runs which are easy for defenders to block Maybe it’s to do with the big-match temperament or the lack of it Oltmans has lamented this habit of his players “Carrying the ball (against teams who pack defences) does not work They (Indian players) know understand and discussed it But you still need to execute it” Oltmans had said after the Malaysia quarterfinal London hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for India They finished 12th at the 1986 World Cup 12th at the 2012 Olympics and sixth out of 10 teams in the World League Luckily for them this tournament did not have the likes of Australia Germany Belgium and New Zealand Else it could’ve been worse India have entered the semifinals of all the tournaments it has hosted since 2014 To repeat that at the World Cup next year will take something special Barring the 1994 Sydney edition India have finished between eighth and 12th in every edition since 1986 However recent results against mid-rung teams and world hockey’s increasing competitiveness have shown that India is barely clinging on to that level as well Neither Canada nor Malaysia have resources comparable to India But with some gritty performances they have left India bruised For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe Central Board for Secondary Education (CBSE) on Saturday issued a show-cause notice to the Bhondsi branch of RyanInternational School in Gurugram giving it 15 days to reply as to why its affiliationshould not be withdrawn Representational

Middle-order batsman Rohit Sharma who top-scored in the second innings today said the relaid Eden Gardens wicket kept the Indian batsmen on their toes right throughout the match and the willow-wielders could not afford to “relax” even for a moment Rohit made a fine 82 off 132 balls with the help of nine boundaries and two hits over the fence to guide India to a healthy 339-run lead over New Zealand at the end of the third day of the second cricket Test “You may have seen this in the last two days They have relaid the wicket It’s not a typical Kolkata wicket what it used to be There’s uneven bounce At no point batsman could relax or take it for granted Every ball you played you had to make sure that you gave 100 per cent” Rohit told reporters at the post day’s press conference WATCH VIDEO: BCCI To Cancel India-New Zealand Series Here’s Why “Condition was never easy Once the ball get softer there’s not much for the bowlers If you put the ball in the right areas you will get odd bounce There’s something in the surface throughout the day not just in the morning afternoon or evening You just could not relax” he added The flamboyant Mumbai batsman has often been criticised for being able to make it big in Test cricket despite possessing serious talent But Rohit somewhat answered back his detractors in this series hitting his second successive half-century READ:Rohit Sharma continues love-affair with Eden Gardens puts India incommand “There is no pressure It only comes from the media that I’m under pressure You may have seen that on the field Did I look under pressure in the first or this Test” he shot back Having bundled out New Zealand for 204 in their first innings India were in a spot of bother in their second essay at 43 for four when Rohit made his entry in the middle He first shared 48 runs with Virat Kohli (45) for the fifth wicket before stitching 103-run seventh-wicket partnership with Wriddhiman Saha (39 batting) took take India to 227 for eight at close “You have to play each ball on its merit and cannot think too far ahead We kept focused at every ball thrown to us It was all about building partnerships There has been quick wickets and it needed one or two batsmen to get you out of trouble” Rohit said “From the team’s perspective that 100-plus partnership with Saha was crucial We could put pressure back on New Zealanders” The Eden Gardens has always remained a happy hunting ground for Rohit “It’s a ground where you will get runs if you take the shots It’s a matter of getting the initial balls getting your eyes set and you can accelerate” Rohit said Rohit said the key to negotiate variable bounce lies in playing the ball as late as possible Citing the example of the two Trent Boult deliveries that rose sharply with one hitting Shikhar Dhawan’s thumb in the bottom hand he said: “The ball pitched right in front kicked off from there when Shikhar got hit You can’t go into front foot completely You have to make sure you’re balanced in the middle and play as late as possible” “It’s all about adjusting to the conditions The ball does a quite a bit in the first session and maybe after tea” PHOTOS:Rohit Sharma extends love affair with Eden Gardens Rohit also hailed skipper Kohli’s knock under pressure “Virat (Kohli) is an aggressive player and he played some wonderful shots which were good to so from the non-strikers end But he got out to a pretty unfortunate delivery which probably will happen once in 10 times Nothing wrong with that it’s the nature of the wicket” he said “Even the New Zealanders also got some pretty heavy balls which kept low” Though somewhat satisfied Rohit hoped the remaining Indian batsmen could add another 50 runs on the board Mondaymorning “At the end where we stand right now we are pretty happy Let’s hope we get 50-plus runs in the morning that will be good” he said For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service
