The National Assembly (NA) Sports Standing Committee will grill Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) officials and national players following the team’s disastrous showing in the Hockey World Cup in New Delhi.

“We would summon the PHF officials and players later this month to grill them on the World Cup debacle,” chairman NA Sports Standing Committee, Jamshed Dasti told Geo Super TV channel Tuesday.

“We are very disappointed on the team`s performance in the World Cup and believe that some major changes should be made in the team.”

Meanwhile, former Pakistan captains Tuesday lambasted PHF secretary Asif Bajwa, calling him the reason behind the team’s poor showing. “PHF secretary Asif Bajwa himself opted to become the manager, he was also posing as chief coach during matches, now he should take responsibility of failure too,” said former captain Islahuddin Siddiqui.

“When you take all the praise for victory, you should also be taking the responsibility of defeat,” Siddiqui said.

“PHF should probe reasons for the team`s poor show in the World Cup,” said Islahuddin, who led Pakistan World Cup triumph in the 1978 event.
