A video has been doing the rounds in social media where a
bunch of girls and their coach who arrived in Australia have blamed
Indian officials for not providing them means of transportation or
food and having missed the first two games. However, it turns out that
this trip was not sanctioned by Hockey India or Sports Authority of
India. The team comes under the purview of School Games Federation Of
India recognised by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports. The
coach has also stopped demand for any help.
