The MHF President Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah knows more about hockey then some of his officials.

For teams in the Razak Cup had complained about playing matches at the unearthly hour of 3.00pm.

The MHF officials did nothing about it, as usual, and the Tournament Director T. Paramalingam said he had no powers to change the fixtures.

But all that changed on Sunday night at the official dinner and Tengku Mahkota instructed that the matches from Tuesday be scheduled for 4.00pm, 6.00pm and 8.00pm with Division Two to start at 3.30 and 5.30.

Now that was not difficult to do right, all it took was commonsense, but sadly that is lacking these days.

Maybe now TM has to re-look the idea of playing the Razak Cup in a zonal format next year, but we will dwell on this later.
