Former Indian captain Sardar Singh announces retirement from international hockey

@SardarSinghHockey Sardar Singh has announced his retirement from international hockey. Talking to news agency PTI, the former Indian captain said, he made the decision after a disappointing Asian Games where India failed to defend their title and had to settle for a Bronze medal.


India's poor performance left them out of the reckoning for direct qualification to the 2020 Olympic Games.


The 32-year old player made his senior debut for India against Pakistan in 2006, and since then played over 350 international matches, captaining the team for eight years. He received the Arjuna Award in 2012 and Padma Shri in 2015.
