India’s men’s hockey team broke into the top four for the first time in four decades after beating Britain 3-1 in the quarter-finals. Commenting on the match from Sony Network, Sunil Taneja and Siddharth Pandey were impressed by India’s win. As the final whistle blew, both the commentators couldn’t control their emotions and tears started rolling down their eyes. Some even attribute this to the poor performance of the Indian hockey team in major tournaments. However, lack of infrastructure, apathetic attitude of sports federations and politics are equally responsible for pushing hockey back. Now a new hope has arisen in the Tokyo Olympics, as Team India has reached the top-4 for the first time in four decades. Even the commentators who heard the eyewitnesses of this historic moment could not control their emotions.
