New Delhi: A livid national hockey captain Sardar Singh on Wednesday said that Indian players need to work on their consistency sooner if they harbour any desire to be a potent force in the world circuit again.
India lost out on a golden chance to qualify for the next year's World Cup in The Hague, Netherlands by finishing a lowly sixth in the just-concluded eight-nation World League Round 3.
"We didn't start well in any of the matches. We played well for 5 minutes and then allowed the opposition to dominate us for the next 10 minutes. We were inconsistent throughout the tournament. We didn't play total hockey for the entire 70 minutes in any of the matches," a fuming Sardar told PTI in an interview on Wednesday.
