New Delhi: Indian Hockey has been dogged by a spate of controversies in the recent past, including the pull-out of two senior players from the national camp. Captain Rajpal Singh however, feels that won't affect the team's performance in the upcoming inaugural Asian Champions Trophy.
"It is true that we have seen a lot of controversies in recent past but I can assure you that they will not affect us in the ground. All the players are in form and raring to go. The atmosphere in the team is terrific," Rajpal said.
The inaugural Asian CT will be played in Ordos, China from September 3 to 11.
