the Indian Hockey is facing a lot of problems for different reasons at the moment. The decline in performances of the National Hockey Team in important tournaments is definitely one of the most important ones amongst them. The Indian Hockey players are seemingly not fit enough to play in the international championships and they are also looking to be out of focus. However, it would be unfare to blame only the players. I think the administrators of Indian Hockey are equally, if not more, responsible for creating this entirely unfortunate and hopeless situation in Indian Hockey. They are fighting with each other for power and nobody is just caring about the development of Indian Hockey. The recent rebellion of many Hockey federations, led by the Bengal Hockey Federation, against the Indian Hockey FEderation is just a perfect example of the hunger for power, of the administrators. Lack of modern training facilities, and scarcity of good coach, is also some of the other reasons for the sorry state of Indian Hockey, at present.
