V. K. Shashikumar , The Week, Feb 22, 1998

What is common between Ashish Ballal and Helen Mary apart form the fact that they are goalkeepers? Ballal played a sterling role in all the games that India won in the Champions Trophy. Mary did the same in the Indira Gandhi tournament, 1996. But in their last match both let in five goals!

Or did you know about a player who was always on the standby list in the Indian hockey team? While his peer had the benefit of the latest Australian equipment, he took blows on his body. Last year he extricated his team, order Security Force, from six tie-breakers in domestic tournaments. It is no wonder that Sarabjit Kumar Sharma has been declared as the player of the year.

This book is not only about statistical nuggets and snippets, it also profiles the controversy that dogged the hockey world. The match-fixing scandal involving India and Malaysia during their 1996 Olympic Qualifying tournament in Barcelona and the subsequent refutation of the Canadian allegations by the International Hockey Federation, is chronicled in detail.

The year book also delves into such issues as entry of multinational companies in the sports good segment, the minutes of the executive committee meeting of the Indian Hockey Federation, development in women’s hockey and the bane of sports in India—Politicking. Hockey fans will find this book useful and if you are net surfer visit
