SportsIndia calls off hockey series against Pakistan

NEW DELHI: The Indian government has called off the bilateral hockey series between India and Pakistan amid diplomatic tensions, Dispatch News Desk (DND) reported on Friday.

The Pakistan’s hockey team was scheduled to tour India in April for five Test matches, which would have revived the bilateral hockey relations between the two traditional rivals in nearly seven years.

Pakistan was expected to play matches in the cities of Ranchi, Lucknow, Delhi, Mohali and Jalandhar between April 5-15.

After Pakistan’s visit, the Indian team was scheduled to pay a return visit and play five matches in Lahore, Faisalabad, Karachi and Sialkot from April 23.

Pakistan and India last played a bilateral hockey series in 2006 – three matches in each country. Pakistan won three and lost one while the remaining two were drawn.
