Indian women's hockey squad is confused and upset after a clock howler, and the FIH apologises at CWG 2022.

India's womens hockey team was denied a big opportunity by a gruesome blunder by the authorities . The penalty shootout in the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games between Australia and India (Women) started wrongly early (the clock was not yet ready to start) The penalty shootout in the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games between Australia and India (Women) started wrongly early .

BIRMINGHAM, On Sunday, the Indian womens hockey team was denied a big opportunity by a gruesome blunder by the authorities.It was an opportunity to put the mighty Australians under the pressure and advance to the CWG final, but the grittier Indian team, which gave its best to challenge the most dangerous side in world hockey, was denied by the officials' callousness.For the first time in the tournament, the Australians were feeling the heat.With Rosie Malone fluffing the first attempt, India could not have had a better start.

But, wait The Australians won back the valuable opportunity because the officials didn't start the clock.They take the shot again, but this time a confused Savita couldn't save it.The pace changes.However, Kaitlin Nobbs and Amy Lawton both failed to score, while Lalremsiami, Neha Goyal, and Navneet Kaur failed to score.

It doesn't matter, but it does matter.The words from Indias chief coach Janneke Schopman summed up the resentment, hopelessness, and rage.The Indian women's hockey team put up their best show on the field after finishing a historic fourth in last years Tokyo Olympics, giving Australians a run for their money.Despite conceding a goal in the 10th minute, India equalised in the 49th minute thanks to a superb field goal by Vandana Katariya.

But in the end, the players were reduced to a stifled bunch.We lost a little bit of momentum after the clock howler.After it went in, everyone is deflated, according to Schopman, a double Olympic medalist.I'm not using it as an excuse, but it's a huge boost for the team when you save, and the girls are sore about it.

I'm also angry because the umpires said we'd take it again.Human beings are prone to erroneous conduct, according to Schopman, but officials must also take into account the emotional toll that comes with such a high-profile sport.It's all human and all emotion.Should we be more helpful, I was attempting to say, girls it doesn't matter, it doesn't matter.

It was not our choice, they said.Australia is not complaining, they are aware they missed it, it was about 10 seconds, and they had the opportunity to score, she said.These people, I suspect, do not fully comprehend the game and the emotions involved.The International Hockey Federation (FIH) apologised for the faux pas and said it would thoroughly analyze the situation, but the approach would do little to help heal Indias wound.

In such situations, the penalty shootout is to be retaken, as was done.The FIH will conduct a thorough investigation into this incident in order to avoid any other issues in the future.The fan was enraged by the clock howler.Virender Sehwag, a former India cricketer, could not resist lunging at the on-field umpires.

Before we became a superpower, such skepticism was prevalent in cricket as well, Hockey mein bhi hum jald banenge, and all clocks will start on schedule.Sehwag tweeted that he was proud of our girls.As India takes on New Zealand on Sunday, they will be looking for at least a bronze.
