'When you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail ...'
I must thank Olympian Maninderjit Singh, aka Mike, for diligently providing me with daily updates of the international friendly hockey matches happening in Kuala Lumpur.
I do, however, find it odd that I'm getting such updates from a former international and not from the Malaysian Hockey Confederation. 😒
Back to Maninderjit, he paid tribute to New Straits Times' senior hockey writer Jugjet Singh's article that was published earlier today.
The Malaysian hockey team has lost all their games in the triangular involving Japan and Great Britain thus far.
Malaysia, despite their home ground advantage, have been disappointing. Covid-19 may have made field training difficult, but it's the same situation for Japan and Britain. So, no excuses here too.
Today is Malaysia's last chance to avoid a "100 per cent losses" in the triangular. Arul's men really need to be great against Britain.
All the best to the Malaysian team when they take on Great Britain at the National Hockey Stadium in Bukit Jalil tonight (9pm).
Hopefully, hockey fans will not be crying like how the sky is crying in Taman Tun Dr Ismail at this very moment.
