قومی کھیل کی غیرمقبولیت اور اسکے اسباب: مکرم مختار کا پاکستان ہاکی کی موجودہ کارکردگی پر ایک تجزیاتی کالم


Lahore: 15 Sep. (PLAYERS.PK/Mukaram Mukhtar) Recently, in 18th Asian games in Jakarta, Pakistan hockey team faced defeat by Japan, a very low ranking team. Such defeat is rare, if we recall the history of Pakistan hockey in 70’s and 80’s. Such Asian teams were, at times, cowered of Pakistan team and could dream only to win over. In bronze medal match, Pakistan again defeated by antagonist Indian team, who played attacking hockey from the very first minute of the game. Pakistan team could not survive in that game too. Resulting, Pakistan missed the easiest chance to qualify for upcoming Tokyo Olympics 2020.
It is suggested that a proper infrastructure and logical system should be developed for Pakistani players to improve the quality of Pakistan hockey. The major reason in the decline of the hockey in Pakistan is not accepting changes in the game as compared to other countries
In subcontinent, Pakistan and India played same style of hockey for decades. India get realized it quite early and start adopting changes and they are now in process of building their game for last few years. India get on track and delivering results again. Pakistan “MUST” do the same on emergency basis, as we are already well behind the required timeline. We may need 5 years to overcome the situation and get our pride back again. Pakistan Hockey needs its former glory, we had in the game. Four times World Champions and three times Olympic gold medalist, team Pakistan need it very anxiously.
Game of Hockey has changed in the last three decades, hence Pakistan must benchmark the steps taken by other top ranking countries to promote hockey.
Hockey’s overall graph is on upward trend. Europeans, have introduced new techniques and principals in the game and also improving their level up. But unfortunately, some countries have gone down, including Pakistan.
Pakistan Hockey can regain its glory and become one of the top ranking teams. People of Pakistan love hockey and we still have memories of victories. In order to get that good top position there might be some changes that are compulsory. Proper infrastructure at the grass root level is required to be established. PHF must start developing teams at different levels under the national hockey team. This includes, Provincial, and District levels. Should have 40 players, start coaching them and provide them financial support. A good team could be harvested in 2 to 4 years. Proper system/structure and good coaching are the essentials. With concentration and focus on target, Pakistan will get good lot of players eventually.
Currently Pakistan, have a national team on radar only, but there is not much under the national team. At the moment, we even don’t have second full team for the rescue. Therefore, the whole structure of grass root and school hockey needs to be made live again. This is the major reason Pakistan is lacking as compared to countries that are at the top.
Pakistan hockey has stop producing heroes like Manzoor Junior, Shahnaz Sheikh, Samiullah, Hasan Sardar, Akhtar Rasool, Shahbaz, Khawaja Junaid and Mansoor, and this is another reason for non-popularity of the game in youngsters. They are reluctant to pick hockey, instead cricket and few other games in Pakistan.
