Some good news coming in from Pakistan! The Uzbekistan hockey agreed to play a six-match test series against Pakistan’s Development Squad.
The team will arrive in Pakistan on the 20th of this month, on a 14-day tour.
According to Secretary Pakistan Hockey Federation, Shahbaz Ahmed Senior, the federation is trying to invite foreign teams to Pakistan for exposure of the new players to the foreign sides.
He said due to scarcity of funds they cannot go abroad and thus have adopted this strategy to invite other teams to Pakistan.
He also said that by the end of this year Poland’s team will also visit Pakistan.
Pakistan will also hold a top quality floodlight tournament after the holy month of Ramazan.
Youth from across the country will be part of that tournament which will help them select players for the national squad.
