New Delhi: If you have plans for Sunday with your friends or family, you still have time to cancel them. Yes, a few of your friends or family members might just get upset if you do not turn up for pre-scheduled plans. But then, it cannot get bigger than this Sunday if you are a sports aficionado. Two epic clashes are lined up as Virat Kohli and boys take on Pakistan in the final of the Champions Trophy at the Oval while the Indian and Pakistani hockey teams will also be crossing swords in the Hockey World League (HWL) semi-finals.
 

Those who are following the Champions Trophy closely know that the Men in Blue beat Bangladesh in the semi-final on Thursday to set a date with arch-rivals Pakistan in a blockbuster clash this Sunday. While that match will start at 3pm IST, the Indian hockey team led by Manpreet Singh will also take the field on Sunday against Pakistan in London at 6.30 pm IST.

 

The hockey teams will be battling it out at The Hockey World League (HWL) semi-finals. In the first game, India thrashed Scotland 4-1. They will play Canada on Saturday and then lock horns with Pakistan on Sunday. India is currently ranked 6th in World Hockey, while Pakistan are 13th. Teams who qualify from this tournament will play in the HWL finals which will be held in Bhubaneswar.

There used to be a time when India playing Pakistan in hockey was considered as fierce a rivalry as it is in cricket now. But those days are gone now. Nonetheless, both teams will be out there wearing the national jersey and hopefully the Indian boys will win the double over Pakistan in England and give the fans back home a reason to smile.

London: The Indian hockey team displayed a strong gesture on Sunday, condemning the attacks against Indian soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir, and condoling the deaths of our martyrs as they wore black armbands during their match against Pakistan in the Hero Hockey World League Semi-Final.

The support staff of the Indian team were also wearing black armbands.

India won the match by a huge margin of 7-1.

Lost to Malaysia in quarters 2-3 courtesy some dubious umpiring. Dominated the entire match only to choke, need to develop killer instinct. Ramandeep Singh is a freaking choker, not the 1st time I have seen him miss an open goal in the dying minutes. :whack:

Only badminton prospects look good this weekend.
