The Express Tribune Blogs - over 3 years
KARACHI:  The ninth edition of the hockey Asia Cup begins today in Malaysia, with Pakistan battling to avoid disqualification from the World Cup. In order to attain the objective, the national team’s task is to achieve the Asia Cup, as anything less would lead to their simultaneous exit from the global event next year. Drawn in Group A along with Japan, Chinese Taipei and hosts Malaysia, Pakistan are set to meet Japan in their opening fixture today. Group B includes India, Bangladesh, Oman and defending champions South Korea. India will take on Oman while the hosts meet Chinese Taipei in the other match of the inaugural day.

Podium-finish out of Pakistan’s reach: Butt
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
KARACHI: Pakistan hockey team has no chance of a podium finish at next month’s Champions Trophy in Australia, according to former captain Rehan Butt who was left out of the squad. Butt said that the event featured top-ranked sides and Pakistan will start among the bottom ones in the tournament as per their rankings. “Pakistan will be up against sides which are better than us in the rankings,” said Butt. “We shouldn’t expect much in this tournament.” However, Butt said that the event will be a golden opportunity for youngsters to gain valuable experience. “We will play rookies in the tournament and providing them the much-needed experience will be the plus point.” Meanwhile, the former captain reiterated his desire to continue playing for Pakistan despite the snub. “I think youngsters should get a chance as the team management is targeting the 2014 World Cup.

Campaign not a failure: hockey coach
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
KARACHI:  Dismissing calls from various quarters to offer his resignation and be held accountable for Pakistan’s dismal Olympics campaign, the team management defended the team’s performance with coach Khwaja Junaid insisting it did ‘reasonably well’. Pakistan failed to qualify for the semi-finals after suffering two losses in their group — a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Great Britain before Australia recorded a thumping 7-0 victory to seal the Greenshirts’ fate. In a repeat of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the three-time gold medallists will play for seventh place today, a match they lost four years ago to eventually finish eighth. Various Olympians including former greats, citing a lack of progress, have demanded resignations from the Pakistan Hockey Federation’s (PHF) top officials, team management and selection committee. While all the team officials were contracted until the Olympics, Junaid expressed his interest to continue as coach. “The ...
