What is the national game of India? 

• Most people know that hockey is the national sport of India. But this is a complete misconception. Neither Hockey nor Kabaddi is the national sport of India. Kabaddi is the national sport of India’s neighboring country Bangladesh.

• Hockey is considered the national sport of India due to India’s heyday in hockey from 1928 to 1956. During that time India had won 6 consecutive gold medals in hockey at the Olympic Games. But recently the sports ministry clarified that they have not declared any sport as the national sport of the country.
