Former Indian Hockey Captain Sardar Singh Announces Retirement


Sardar Singh has announced his retirement from international hockey. He made the decision after a disappointing Asian Games where India failed to defend their title and had to settle for a Bronze medal. 

India's poor performance left them out of the reckoning for direct qualification to the 2020 Olympic Games. The 32-year old player made his senior debut for India against Pakistan in 2006, and since then played over 350 international matches, captaining the team for eight years.
