Ad hoc hockey committee rubbishes rift

New Delhi: The ad-hoc committee of Indian hockey will have us believe that all is well among the game's administrators.

There were rumours of a rift in the selection committee after Randhir Singh resigned a couple of days ago but those were shot down by IOA President Suresh Kalmadi.

The other decision made were that Hockey nationals will be held from the March 2 in Pune.

The selection committee has been further strengthened with former captain Pargat Singh and Jagbir Singh also joining the 5 member team which will also function as the technical committee.

One of the selectors will always travel with the national squad and proposals for a new coach are also being considered.
