World CUp Update: Ric and Lissek here, India-Argentina match tomorrow

Title favorites Australia landed Delhi today in the morning; and then went into quick business like mode. After small break after landing, the team reached the stadium. Ric Charles Worth, the world’s renowned Hockey Guru was trying to test the every corner of turf with his own style, knocking with stick and ball himself. Besides other support staff, Paul Lissec, the legendary German Coach – now settled in Malaysia -- was with the Australian team on the ground. Paul is helping Ric as advisor to the National side, on special request from Ric.

Ric Charles Worth was happy with the facilities created for the Hockey Mahakumbh to start from Sunday. The Australians are strong contenders of the world Cup this time.

Australians will have two sessions of practice tomorrow.

Training schedule for Tuesday

08-10 AM Australia and 2PM-4pm

0-12 AM Pakistan

20 hrs India -- Argentina practice match


Pakistan reached India via Wagah border midway in the day. Manager and former Olympian Asif Bajwa said they don't think any security problem is there in India, as terrorism is a global phenomenon.

Coach Shahid Ali Khan said that having won India on the previous occasions at Salta and Kuantan, they are confident of good show on Sunday. He said, "India has home advantage


Delhi Police have taken over the security of National Stadium from today onwards. Till now multiplicity of agencies were involved, from construction side, Sports Authority of India side etc.


FIH has stipulated no media will be present for the whole of practice sessions, that is till 27th. I don't understand why everybody is targetting media


Even the ground practice schedule and its management is with the FIH. For every small activity there is an import from FIH. It certainly appears Indians don't know anything!!


Rs.100 tickets for the inaugural day has been sold out. It is no longer available on the official site that sells tickets. Thousands will be disappointed, as we get enormous querry as to where to get the tickets.
