Pakistan Wins Asian Title in Hockey after 20 Years
It is a very happy news that both of our hockey teams man's and woman's got gold medals in hockey in Asian games. Now the hockey team has qualified for the 2012 London Olympics. In my opinion we are just wasting our valuable foreign exchange on useless game of cricket, we must promote hockey and the hockey players be given the status and protocol as is being provided to cricketers. Our hockey team has more talents than that of cricket. Cricket is the game of those nations who have been British colonies and we are embracing yet the traditions of our slavery days. Cricket that spreads on 8 hour is quite a waste of time. Game must be more than 60 minutes or 70 minutes. It saves a lot of youth who stick to tv till the end of match. In addition, corruption scandals are coming to light after each and every match. Match fixing is common. So ,only we have an international standard game is hockey.
