Olympian Jaswant Rajput said "Hockey is now more about power than skill". He told in an interview “Hockey is now a hit and run game. There is no offside. It is now more about power than skill. I no more watch the game, especially after the way India has been performing,”
Part of the gold medal winning Indian hockey team at the 1948 Olympics and a member of the squad at the 1952 Games, Rajput is livid at the administrators of the sport and the lack of talent.
“It is heartbreaking to see the lack of talent in Indian hockey. The administrators are to be blamed. They ruined the national game of the country. Why would children take up the game? There is neither money nor fame,” said Rajput.
