ISLAMABAD: Pakistan, due to their inability to finish among the top four spots in the Asia Cup, will miss the Federation International de Hockey (FIH) Men’s Hockey World Cup 2023.

The four leading Asian hockey-playing nations India, Japan, Malaysia, and Korea will be seen in action in the 16-team event, starting in Indian cities, Bhubaneswar and Rourkela, within nine-day time.

For the first time, sixteen countries are competing in the Hockey World Cup that earlier was restricted to just 12 countries.

Yet, four-time world champions Pakistan who are ranked 17th in the world are missing the four-yearly action.
