Glasgow:

Indian men's hockey captain Sardar Singh was officially reprimanded for inappropriate physical conduct against an opposition player during his side's Commonwealth Games group match against Australia here.

The incident happened on Tuesday when Eddie Ockenden was hit on the face. India lost the match 2-4.

After video evidence was played, the appeal jury at the Glasgow National Hockey Centre found that Sardar had no intention to cause the injury to Ockenden but had behaved inappropriately, the organisers said in a statement on 'myGamesInfo 2014' website.

The official reprimand has no immediate consequences.
