Our country's national sport is Hockey. Everybody knows it. But unfortunately the craze and the team become more weak nowadays. Everybody telling many reasons like internal politics, lack of good sportsmen. So can you tell me what you think. We need to improve the sport or to change it to cricket or any other sport in which India shines.

Personally i never really watch hockey. I like to watch the people fight though. It is fun as hell to watch. I think that if people payed more attention to hockey then there would be a lot more Hockey players. Some people do not become hockey players because they wake up wanting to be football players or basketball players. It is a shame though. Thats why Football and basketball gets the best players. because of high contracts and simple procedures. In Hockey you have to skate and fight and try to score while keeping your balance. then you have to get to the goal where a goalie is covering most of it and score. Not saying it is a bad sport but that its not interesting as the big ones. The same goes with soccer

Hello, Indian's national sport is HOCKEY.This sport has to be changed to CRICKET.The government often watch only CRICKET players.The only sport in which INDIA no.1 is only CRICKET.I haven't heard of Indian hockey team about any tournaments recently.At the past,Hockey was played by the most of the Indians.Now most of them like playing only CRICKET.Maybe, this may also change.So I think India's national sport needs to be changed.
