We celebrate Dhyan Chand’s birth anniversary with some fun and breezy facts about Indian hockey
We pride ourselves on our knowledge of Sachin’s centuries and India’s victories (umm, should we say losses in view of the recent performance?), but how well do we know our other sporting heroes and heroines?
The MBRB Editors have long argued that it’s time for us Indians to stop obsessing over cricket and spread our love to other games. We’re delighted with the recent attention to tennis, badminton, wrestling and kabaddi, but how about good old hockey, the game that India dominated for nearly 50 years?
To celebrate the birth anniversary of hockey legend Dhyan Chand – regarded by many as the greatest hockey player of all times – we bring to you the MBRB Hockey Quiz. If you’re a hockey aficionado, then this should be an easy breeze for you; if not, why not learn something about the sport that brought us international glory at a time when we were infants on the world stage?
Happy Hockeying! Do remember to share the results on Facebook & Twitter, and try our other quizzes here
