Rehan Butt and Shakeel Abbasi to play in WSH
KARACHI: Pakistan’s star hockey players Rehan Butt and Shakeel Abbasi have decided to participate in World Series Hockey (WSH), India’s controversial hockey, league which begins today.
Talking to the media at Lahore airport, Butt said that he had made the decision to play in the league to honour the commitment that he had made.
He further added that the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) should not be stopping the players from participating in the league as Pakistan’s national team is not playing any other series at the moment.
According to Butt, the PHF has threatened the players and warned them not to participate in the league.
The PHF, acting in accordance with the policy of the International Hockey Federation (FIH), has forbidden the players to participate in the league and will be imposing bans on them if they do.
