--Press Release
New Delhi, 04 April 2015: With an impressive run in the Hero Hockey World League Round 2 in New Delhi, midfielder Navjot Kaur is all prepared for the upcoming Hawke’s Bay Cup 2015 in New Zealand scheduled to start on 11th April.

Speaking on the tournament, Navjot Kaur said, “We are going to face the best hockey teams in the world and it will not always be easy to materialise the opportunities in goals. We are working on all aspects of the game, from basic quick running to out-of-the-box strategies. Speed and counter-attack will be the key-factor in the tournament. We have to react quickly and should look at entering the opponents’ D in few seconds. Only speed and quick counter-attack can surprise the best teams and allow us to take an edge. We are working on these areas and have improved a lot. I am looking forward to the tournament.”
