The world series hockey title name is misleading .It is a step in the right direction with more number of players from all over India getting an opportunity to exhibit their talent.The series controlled BY ''NIMBUS'' is being well promoted by sports media ''NEO SPORTS''we are already seeing some catchy ads on neo sports.
What better platform can the hockey in India can ask for, there is sponsorship, there is media hype ,there is wider exposure .All that the Indian hockey have to do is to play with right earnest instead of cribbing and see that the national game of India regains its lost popularity and status.CHAK DE INDIA.
