ISLAMABAD – The Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) has taken notice of the disappointing performance by the Pakistan hockey team in the ongoing Champions Trophy in Breda, Netherlands.
PSB has asked Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) to explain the reasons behind the dismal performance of national hockey team in Champions trophy.
The caretaker government has also stopped the payment of the special grant of Rs200 million to PHF which was approved by former prime minister Shahid Kahqan Abbasi.
Pakistan lost four of their five games in the last edition of the Champions Trophy, after being thrashed by India in the opening game by 4-0, followed by back to back defeats, 2-1 against Australia and a 4-0 loss to hosts Netherlands.
The green shirts gained some momentum when they beat second-placed Argentina 4-1 but were kicked out of the medal’s race after losing 4-2 to Belgium on Friday.
