    KHU should consider long term strategies for the National side. Let us forget the issue of gambling with a team to represent the nation in international level. Now see how silly they are saying they are preparing for 2011. which is less than 6 months. Or should i say they are creating a way to beg for money from Nock so as to go and watch Olympics qualifiers?
