Men's Champions Challenge warm-up game called off due to downpour

The South African men's hockey team's Pre-Champions Challenge warm-up match against Malaysia was called off after 15 minutes when a torrential downpour and lightning engulfed the Randburg Hockey Stadium last night. The score was 1-1 at that stage.

The SA men meet Japan at 5 pm Wednesday evening in their final warm-up match before they face Poland and eight-time Olympic Games gold medallists India at 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday respectively in their opening Pool A matches of the prestigious 8-nation Champions Challenge tournament that is being staged at the Randburg Hockey Stadium from this Saturday, November 26 to next Sunday, December 4.
