IMG SRC: The Bridge

With dark clouds looming over Indian Hockey, a silver line has emerged. After India’s great success at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics in the Men’s and Women’s events, a lot of sponsors were keen on investing in this sport. Earlier all the sponsorships had dried up as the team was struggling at the global events. But Captain Mandeep Singh and his team revived the losing spirit of the game. The latest update from the CWG 2022 in Birmingham is that the Indian Men’s Hockey Team has qualified for the Semi-Finals. Here is an in-depth look:
