A dissatisfied Hockey India President Dilip Tirkey on Monday claimed captain Harmanpreet Singh’s “sudden drop in form” referred issue, though absence of fine edge objectives was not the single factor for the residence side’s shock as well as early leave from the FIH Men’s World Cup inBhubaneswar India shed to New Zealand in their crossover suit on Sunday in the fine shootout after both sides were secured 3-3 at the end of policy time.
Tirkey claimed any kind of talk relating to adjustment of train as well as captain is early as the World Cup is taking place as well as India are to play in the 9th to 16th category suits.
“Harmanpreet was doing very well in the FIH Pro League matches and in the (five match) Australia series just before the World Cup. We had a lot of expectation from him but suddenly dropping form in the World Cup is a matter of concern,” Tirkey, among the finest fine edge players of his time, informed PTI in a special meeting.
“There are also some up and coming drag-flickers in the team. Drag-flickers are very important in modern hockey and we will plan accordingly,” included Tirkey, that had a lengthy conference with the team on Monday.
“Just one-and-half years back, we had won a bronze in the Olympics and then not reaching the quarterfinals of the World Cup is very disappointing.”
Harmanpreet took the majority of India’s 26 fine edges in the 4 suits, where the team racked up simply 5 objectives.
Harmanpreet himself transformed simply 2 Computers.
“Ultimately, as I said earlier also, if we don’t score more goals from penalty corners we will face issues and that was what happened yesterday,” Tirkey, a previous India captain that has actually played 412 worldwide suits, claimed.
“The team’s strong point was scoring from penalty corners. We had high expectation from Harmanpreet. But his flicks were not converting into goals, and we saw it from the first match to the last. Not scoring from the PCs hurt the team a lot.” Tirkey claimed India had talented the crossover suit to New Zealand from a winning placement.
“We got enough opportunities to win the match against New Zealand. We were leading 3-1 and we could have done better in the defensive structure. After that in the shootout, both our goalkeepers did very well and gave us opportunities to win the match. But we missed the chances in the shootout also and lost the match.
“Kahi na kahi jita huwa suit ko hum unko de diya hi (Somehow, a suit we must have won was talented to them),” he said.
Harmanpreet could have sealed the match for India in sudden death but he wasted the chance.
“We played hostile hockey as well as we obtained opportunities (versus New Zealand). We obtained 10 Computers as well as we racked up simply 2 from them, we might have racked up much more,” Tirkey said.
“Some gamers from whom we had a great deal of assumptions, they in some way might not execute. We all have actually approved it.” Tirkey, one of the best defenders of his generation, was also not happy with the performance of the defensive unit of the home side, of which Harmanpreet is the bulwark.
“If we discuss out protection, I really feel there was something missing out on in our protective framework, we might have done much better (versus New Zealand).
“We also felt the absence of Hardik Singh, he was performing very well and his injury hurt us. But we could have won the match with the players we have.” Head train Graham Reid claimed on Sunday after the loss versus New Zealand that the team requires a mental conditioning train proceeding, as well as Tirkey claimed Hockey India will do the necessary. “Whatever the team needs, we are ready to do it. Whatever the coach and the team needed, Hockey India has provided them,” he claimed.
Asked if there will be modifications in the placement of train or the captain, Tirkey claimed, “We will see later. The World Cup is going on and any discussion on that is not appropriate.” India will bet Japan in their very first category suit in Rourkela on January 26, prior to handling a yet-to-be-known challenger on January 28.
Tirkey claimed the team’s following top priority is to do well in the Asian Games, set up to be held this year.
“Asian Games is very important for us and that is our priority before the Olympics next year,” he claimed.
“Some players are out of the team due to injury, they will come back. Some players might not have performed well due to pressure. We will provide the team with a mental conditioning coach and we will see.”
