It was disheartening for Hockey fans to have Indian Men’s team finish sixth at the Hockey World League Semifinal in London. Less than a week and the Women’s Hockey team leaves today for the World Cup to be held at Johannesburg.
The captain Rani Rampal seems to be quite confident as she believes the performance of the team has improved. Recently, Rani spoke about how she chose Hockey over other sports like Wrestling and Boxing which dominate the state. For her, Hockey was always her “first love”. As per her words to Times of India, fans are her biggest support. She says, “Obviously, it feels great when fans support you. But for women’s hockey, the problem has been that fan support only happens after we win and it is reported in the news.
Poora time support karein fans toh humein bhi achha lagega. Shayad performace bhi better ho.” Go ahead captain, your fans are always with you.
