Q.

Our cricketers are handsomely paid and greatly recognized. Let us not have any grudge on that. But look at fate of our hockey players. When they go out to represent India in international matches they have to live in third rate hotels in appalling conditions. Even when they win big tournaments they do not get the proper recognition for that. Recently Indian hockey coach Mr. Carvalho had openly expressed his resentment to bring this to the notice of the authorities and the governments .Do you think better recognition and monitory rewards will motivate and inspire our hockey players to regain th

Yes. Better monitory benefit will bring in more people to the game.It is high time that something is done to Hockey. May be BCCI [Cricket] can contribute.Perhaps it is easier said than done !

A player has to make his own career likewise look at the hockey ..Where the game is going .We are in qualifying stages of the Olympic ..we qualify or not that is another thing but playing qualifying matches is in itself shameful .Cricketers are doing great at top level and are in top three teams of the world .
if Hockey team is able to win the world cup or an Olympic gold i think that they will get more money and recognition than the cricket players .I was going through some old front news papers and the day India won the gold of Olympics each and every player had his snap and profile on the front pages of the newspaper .Something that our cricketrs are not able to do at present time too
But the downfall has got it's own reasons too .
