Ever since the 2012 London Olympics, Sardar Singh has taken the Hockey league by a storm. In spite of India’s banal performance at the Summer Olympic Games in field hockey, Singh was thoroughly valued for his role, in whatever the Indian hockey team managed to put up that can be claimed as a positive point. According to Moritz Fuerste, the German Captain and the London Olympic team, the team had amped up their game since the last time and the driving force behind such an imp-roved stance is definitely Singh’s leadership qualities. He also pointed a few other changes that can be integrated to get more out of the team. He said that the Indian team should work harder and learn to pick up new methods from the other teams in order to keep up. Keeping an open mind is not India’s general attribute but exceptions have to be made if India plans to make it to the top.Fuerste, who was the winner of 2012 FIH Player of the year, said that Sardar Singh was right to be nominated for the plaudit alongside him, thanks to his amazing performance throughout the year. Another true testament to how much the Singh is in demand was during the first Hockey India League (HIL) auction when Sardar Singh was bid for an outstanding amount of for USD 78,000 (Rs 42.49 lakh) while V R Raghunath was bought for USD 76,000 (Rs 41.40 lakh). This showed how much the game of Hockey is worth in India. Fuerste also confessed that India’ fan following in Hockey is noticeably large compared to Germany’s. This exposure doesn’t come as much of a surprise as hockey is India’s national sport but on the other hand the German’s are ardent football fans.Recently Sardar Singh profile had another highlight added to it when he was chosen as the captain to lead India’s eighteen men hockey team in the second round of Hero Hockey World League that is going to be held at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium starting from February 18 to 24. V R Raghunath has been named vice captain of the Indian hockey team. The match will take place as part of the certification league for the Hockey World Cup set to take place in 2014. India waits with abated breath to see if Singh is just another over hyped sports star or the real deal.
