CWG 2022: FIH ‘sorry’ for clock howler during Indian women’s semifinal loss, will review incident | Commonwealth Games 2022 News

BIRMINGHAM: The International Hockey Federation (FIH) on Saturday apologised for the clock controversy that passed off during the Indian women’s crew’s semifinal loss in opposition to Australia on the Commonwealth Games, saying it will “thoroughly review” the incident.
Australia’s Rosie Malone, who missed her first try during the penalty shootout, was gifted one other likelihood because the eight second countdown on the scoreboard hadn’t began. The ahead didn’t miss the second time, placing her aspect within the lead.
The Indians ultimately misplaced the semifinal 0-3 within the shootout after each groups have been tied 1-1 on the finish of regulation time as the gang booed the technical officers for the choice.
“In the semi-final match of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games between Australia and India (Women), the penalty shootout started mistakenly too early (the clock was not yet ready to operate), for which we apologise,” FIH stated in a press release.
“The process in place for such situations is that the penalty shootout has to be retaken, which was done. This incident will be thoroughly reviewed by the FIH in order to avoid any similar issues in the future,” the assertion added.
