Indian men’s hockey team jumps to 5th spot in FIH rankings



New Delhi: A spectacular show at the Champions Trophy has pushed the Indian Men’s Hockey team one spot above to fifth in the latest FIH rankings chart.

India had lost to Australia via penalty shootout in the summit clash of the Champions Trophy after the two sides were locked 1-1 in regulation time in the Netherlands last month.

India, which is defending its title at the upcoming Asian Games, is the only team which registered an upward movement among the top 10 teams.

The Indian team, which now has 1484 points in its kitty, is above the likes of 2012 Olympic champions Germany, England and Spain.
