KARACHI: International players, participating in the ongoing Nishan-e-Haider Hockey tournament in Karachi, took a tour of the city ahead of the knock-out action of the tournament on Sunday.
Eleven players, all goal-keepers, from from Australia and Argentina are currently in Karachi for the Nishan-e-Haider 9Ners hockey tournament.
On Sunday, the players stepped out of the hotel to visit places other than their usual destination- the Abdul Sattar Hockey Stadium.
They started the trip with a visit to Quaid-e-Azam’s Mausoleum, where they paid tribute to Pakistan’s founder.
They also visited the museum and witnessed a glimpse of the life of Pakistan’s founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah. The players were also seen clicking selfies at the spot.
Following the visit to mausoleum, the players continued the city tour and reached the famous spot of the town – Sea View.
The festivity at the Karachi beach mesmerised the foreign hockey players and they couldn’t stop themselves from enjoying horse rides and camel rides.
The players also went to a famous shopping mall and bought traditional eastern dresses from themselves.
The foreign players praised hospitality of their hosts and remarked that their stay has been very memorable so far and they look forward to visiting the city again.
The players had reached the city earlier this week.
