Famous Hockey Player of Pakistan

There are many famous and great hockey players in Pakistan. The list is long but some of these players have gained a lot of fame and popularity.

Naseer Shah

Atif Hameedi

Munir Dar








Pakistan's style of hockey is also called the Asian style. In which the players would give small passes to each other and take the ball between the players of the opposing team with lightning speed and attack the goal of the opposing team. European teams were also helpless in the face of the natural grass hockey style. So to thwart the Asian hockey style, European teams made changes to the rules and regulations. Artificial grass was preferred to natural grass for playing matches.

At the moment, despite the hard work and good play of the Pakistani players, they are not achieving the success that they have achieved in the past. That is why the Pakistani hockey team is no longer at the top of the world rankings.

Hockey’s Mistakes

Players also do some carelessness while playing hockey. Which can cause a lot of damage. For example, if two hockey players are playing hockey, they both try to move the ball in the opposite direction. While playing, a player does not think that if he lifts his hockey stick in the air, the stick may hit the other player in the face. And there may be damage.

But the International Hockey Federation (IHF) is also making similar rules. If a player makes such a mistake, he is disqualified or fined. He also apologizes to the player who injured him. The Hockey Federation also bans such players from playing if the situation is serious.

Is sport important for human life?

Sports are very important in human life. Sport improves physical health. It has been observed that athletes are physically stronger and more energetic than the average person. Along with physical health, sports are also an effective means of moral training. Players are taught to adhere to the rules of the game. If a player plays, he is going to win, but if he loses, he gladly accepts his failure. He overcomes his weaknesses and gets ready for the next match. Thus the game creates in a player the ability to be relaxed, high spirited, and constantly striving.
