No Pakistan hockey player has secured a place in the (FIH) 2018 Hockey Stars Awards list and there is no surprise as to why.
But what is astonishing, is that not even one Pakistani umpire was included in this mega event. Infact, Pakistan officials do not even feature in the coach and umpire categories at all.
Belgium, England, Australia, and the Netherlands’ players dominate the list issued by the International Hockey Federation.
The FIH Coach of the Year will be determined by an FIH panel, while Umpire of the Year will be decided by the FIH Officials Committee.
The winners will be announced on February 14.
