Women hockey team departs for Commonwealth Games

Barcelona: Indian women’s hockey team left for London, England from Barcelona on Monday morning. Upon reaching London, the national side will take a bus to Nottingham.
The team will carry out a final preparation camp in Nottingham before they leave for Birmingham on July 23 to take part in the CWG.
Captain Savita said that the national side is determined to turn their form around after their ninth-place finish at the FIH World Cup.
“Unfortunately, we couldn’t play to our potential at the World Cup, but we are very determined to turn our form around at the Commonwealth Games 2022. We have a great squad with a fantastic balance of experienced and young players. We’ll take a fresh start at CWG and I am certain that we will be able to take on the best of teams in the competition.”
“We have to improve upon a few aspects of our game and we will be focusing on that in the lead up to CWG 2022. I feel we have been playing well, but just need to tweak a few things in our game to start winning games consistently,” she added.
India will face off against Ghana in their first match of the CWG campaign on July 29. (UNI)
