‘Loss against Pak was haunting us’
Indian players lacked energy in the bronze medal match against Australia as the heart-breaking defeat against Pakistan kept haunting the side, High Performance Director Roelant Oltmans said on Sunday.
India had a golden opportunity to break their 32-year-old medal jinx in Champions Trophy but they ended up with a 1-2 defeat in the bronze medal match. India only once won a medal in the Champions Trophy and that too a bronze in the 1982 edition of the tournament in Amsteelveen, the Netherlands. “We wanted a medal here but it seems we missed something extra. On Saturday?s loss was disappointing. It was at the back of the players mind when they took the field on Sunday.
