NEW DELHI – Suffering from war-hysteria, Indian national hockey captain PR Sreejesh on Wednesday vowed that his team will give it’s all to beat Pakistan in the Asian Champions Trophy in Malaysia next month.

Sreejesh did not mention the recent Uri terror attack which led to heightened tensions between the two countries but said his team would not want to disappoint Indian soldiers by losing against Pakistan in the Asian Champions Trophy to be played at Kuantan in Malaysia between October 20 and 30.

“India-Pakistan match brings a lot of excitement to the table. We want to give hundred percent. We don’t want to disappoint our soldiers by losing, especially when they sacrifice their lives in the exchange of fire at the borders,” Sreejesh blamed.

India face Pakistan on October 23 in their round-robin match in the tournament to be played among the top six teams in the continent.

Sreejesh also said that Pakistan was currently playing low-grade hockey though they have a special quality of springing a surprise on any given day.-Online
