CWG: Sardar Singh suspended for semi-final against New Zealand
Glasgow: In a huge jolt to Indian men's hockey team, captain Sardar Singh has been suspended for the semi-final match against New Zealand on Saturday following his yellow card for a dangerous slide tackle in pool A match against South Africa at the Commonwealth Games here.
The appeal jury held a hearing to consider Singh's latest disciplinary lapse, for which he was sent to the sin bin for 10 minutes.
He has already been reprimanded on Wednesday over an incident during India's match against Australia on Tuesday.
Sardar was deemed to have been guilty of "inappropriate physical conduct" after Australia's Eddie Ockenden was hit in the face.
Following a review by the appeal jury after India vs South Africa match on Thursday, the jury decided to suspend Sardar for two matches. That was later reduced to one game after India submitted a protest.
