Hindustan Times, New Delhi
Hosts India are set to take on world number 15 South Africa in the first match of the Hockey World Cup in Bhubaneswar on Wednesday. The Indians, who won their one and only World Cup in 1975, will be looking to start their campaign with a big win.
The world number five India would be eager to reach the semi-finals, and possibly a podium finish. That is though, easier said than done as besides tackling powerhouses like two-time defending champions Australia, Netherlands, Germany and Olympic champions Argentina, the Indians will be under pressure to live up to the expectations of millions of fans.
The last time India played a World Cup at home, in 2010 in New Delhi, they finished a lowly eighth and going by records, the host nation has never fared well in the tournament.
