Pakistan’s hockey squad have left for the Indonesian city of Jakarta on Friday evening to take part in the 2018 Asia Cup.

The team will take part in a training camp in Jakarta for a week and will then play its first match against Thailand on August 20.

Pakistan will also play against Oman, Kazakhstan, Malaysia and Bangladesh.

The side had earlier said its participation was subject to the release of their salaries. The players complained that the board has not paid them a single penny for the past six months

They confirmed their participation in the tournament after Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) President Brigadier (retd) Muhammad Sajjad Khokhar assured the team that all dues will be cleared.

Pakistan has to perform well in the Asian Games if their participation in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics is to be confirmed.
