Young women’s hockey team defender Nisha feels that India could learn from the communication skills of the Argentinians and Germans to gain an edge over their rivals on the field.

“Both Argentina and Germany play very tactical hockey and the way they communicate and look for gaps to penetrate into the circle is very unique. Defending against them was not easy but at the same time, there was so much to learn from them,” said the 25-year-old.

Nisha, who was part of the India team that toured Argentina in January this year, says that playing against world No. 2 Argentina and world No. 3 Germany in their home countries had been a big confidence booster for her.

“My immediate focus is to work on the areas as advised by the coaching staff. Following the Germany tour, each of our performances was analyzed and we have been told what areas we need to focus on,” said the defender who made her international debut against Uruguay in the 2019 FIH Women’s Series Finals at Hiroshima.

“With the Tokyo Olympics approaching, all players want to prove their mettle in order to find a place in the team. There is healthy competition within the core group, which pushes each other to perform better. Personally, I want to learn as much as possible from the senior players and execute my role in the team to perfection,” said Nisha. (IANS/SP)

Indonesian lawmakers passed a law on the relocation of the nation's capital to the island of Kalimantan, which shares borders with Malaysia and Brunei, from the most populated island of Java. The move is a step forward in one of the most ambitious projects initiated by the country's President Joko Widodo, Xinhua news agency reported. Some former presidents had floated ideas of relocating the capital city in the past. The president, widely known as Jokowi, three years ago vowed to relocate the capital city to the province of East Kalimantan due to a number of issues like high population density and land subsidence in Jakarta which is home to more than 10 million people.
