The Worldwide Hockey Federation (FIH) on Saturday apologized for the clock controversy that happened in the course of the Indian girls’s semi-final loss to Australia on the Commonwealth Video games, saying it’ll “rigorously look into” the case.
Australia’s Rosie Malone, who missed her first try within the penalty shootout, was given one other probability because the second countdown on the scoreboard had not but begun. The ahead didn’t miss the second, giving her group the lead. The Indians in the end misplaced the semi-final 0-3 in a penalty shootout after each groups drew 1-1 on the finish of regulation time as the gang booed the technical officers concerning the determination.
“Throughout the semi-final of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Video games between Australia and India (Girls), the penalty shootout began wrongly too early (the clock was not prepared), we apologize.” The FIH mentioned in a press release.
“The process that applies to such conditions is that the penalty shootout needs to be replayed, has been executed. This incident will likely be scrutinized by the FIH to keep away from any comparable issues sooner or later,” the assertion added.
