Members of the Indian hockey team have been through a testing phase, confined to the Sports Authority of India complex in Bangalore for over two months as the Coronavirus-caused lockdown suddenly halted the national camp.

Last month, one of the cooks at the centre passed away due to a heart attack and later tested positive for COVID-19, leaving the authorities worried.

However, things have eased up a bit since last week as the lockdown gradually opened up. Practice too has begun with players implementing strict social distancing rules as prescribed by Hockey India.
