India's hockey coach Michael Nobbs was left with mixed feelings following the Indian government's cancellation of Pakistan trip on security grounds yesterday.

Nobbs said though he was looking forward to the 10-match bilateral series, it would only add to the tight schedule.

“I hoped the 10-match series on either side of the border will be postponed and not cancelled. The India-Pakistan hockey matches are followed keenly by hockey buffs and I had looked forward to the series,” he said. “But in a way it would be fine for the boys as they have a tight calendar with the World Cup qualifier and the Asia Cup not far away,” Nobbs further added.
