There is no doubt that Pakistan's participation in the Hockey World Cup was finally confirmed after the owner of the Cricket Company came on a porch to demand an independent national currency (PHF).

Khartoum's Khartoum Coalition Secretary Shahbaz Ahmed said Peshawar Zalmi's owner Javed Afridi has signed a major investment agreement with the PHF which will last until 2020.
The sponsorship agreement will cover all international trips for high and high-level groups as well as local hockey.
Javed Afridi, speaking to Peshawar Zalmi, has signed a deal to join Haier Pakistan, "Shahbaz said.
"The Pakistani team is going to India for the World Cup," he added.
Shahbaz, however, refused to disclose the amount of support.
The Hockey World Cup will be played in Bhubaneswar from November 28 to December 16.
PHF already warned if the government would not pay 80 million rupees risking Pakistan's participation in the World Cup.
Imran Khan is leading up until Sunday without receiving any donations while hockey is the country's national game.
"Now we are waiting for the visas of our players and the captains," the secretary said.
PHF also sought a loan from the Danish tax committee, but PCB has clearly rejected the request.
Shabak said the deal was unbearable, PHF is not just sending it to the Indian side, but also confirms taxpayers' high taxes, which are not given daily bonuses for the latest in Asia and the Champions League.
The last time Pakistan played Bhubaneswar was the Champions League final in December, 2014.
