Should India get the rights to host the 2010 men's hockey world cup, given how poorly the game is run here?

New Delhi:

The FIH, which is the governing body for hockey, said on Tuesday that India may not host the 2010 World Cup which had been allotted to them last year.

They want the Indian Hockey Federation to clean up their act, and keep to its 'Promoting Indian Hockey' project, that would help improve the game's standards in India.

But according to the FIH president, India have not done enough to promote the game, and a meeting would be held on March 25 to decide if India can host the world event.

Given how poorly the game has been managed by the IHF under the leadership of KPS Gill, and given how poorly the team has performed in recent times, do you think that India should be allowed to host the World Cup.

Tell us what you think.
