The exhibition and test matches featuring the Canadian women’s national team versus Team India, which were to be played between 26 May and 4 June in Surrey, Canada, have been cancelled.

Ms Amrit Bose, Hon. Secretary General of the Indian Hockey Confederation, informed Field Hockey Canada that the decision not to travel to Canada was based on the advisement from her Department of Sports not to visit the countries where swine flu cases have been found.

'I am disappointed that this series has been cancelled because these matches would have been very valuable for both our national and developmental teams but I understand India's position', says Canadian head coach Louis Mendonca.
