The Indian hockey team will participate in a three-nation tournament to be held here in April, the Pakistan Hockey Federation announced on Wednesday.

PHF secretary Asif Bajwa said India and Malaysia had sent confirmation for the tournament.

“We have also invited South Africa and Argentina, but have got no positive response so far. But, the biggest news is that India has confirmed participation,” he said.

Bajwa said the PHF was informed that Hockey India had been given clearance by the government to travel to Pakistan for the event. “The tournament will be another big step towards reviving international hockey in Pakistan after the tour by China last December for the Test series,” he said.
