Pakistan vs Malaysia Hockey World Cup

Pakistan assistant coach Danish Kaleem on Saturday received an official reprimand from the FIH Technical Delegate for violating security code during his side's Pool D match against Malaysia on December 5 in the ongoing Men's Hockey World Cup.

During the Pakistan-Malaysia match, Kaleem moved within the stadium without wearing the mandatory tournament accreditation and had an inappropriate behavior towards security officials. At the hearing, Danish Kaleem admitted the breach of conduct and apologised.

The decision of the FIH Technical Delegate also includes that, if any further misconduct happens regarding the security rules which are set up for this tournament, it is likely that this will result to a suspension for the rest of the tournament and the removal of the accreditation.

The proceedings of the hearing had been initiated by the FIH Technical Delegate.
