PM to watch hockey final at stadium

October 13, 2010 20:02 IST

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will cheer the Indian hockey team during their Commonwealth Games title clash against Australia at the Dhyan Chand Stadium in New Delhi on Thursday. Singh will watch the match in the company of former Olympians, PMO sources said.

UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul were seen cheering the Indian hockey team at the same venue where the hosts had thrashed Pakistan 7-3  to enter the semi-finals. In the semis, India defeated England in a tie-breaker on Tuesday.

Singh was present at the dazzling opening ceremony of the Games along with President Pratibha Patil and Prince Charles.
