New Delhi:

The payment dispute between India's national hockey players and the game's administrators has reportedly not yet resolved despite a marathon meeting on Saturday.

According to reports, the players are not fully satisfied with what has been offered to them. They have gone back on their earlier stance, which means they will go on strike from Monday and will boycott the World Cup preparatory camp.

India players were unhappy with Hockey India, interim governing body, over the non-payment of dues.

To sort out the disagreement, the two parties met in New Delhi on Saturday.

Six senior players including captain Rajpal Singh flew down from Pune to hold discussion with the top officials of Hockey India before an amicable solution was reached with both parties "promising to move forward".

"The issue has been resolved. Hockey India is for the development of hockey in the country. We had a meaningful dialogue and discussion with the players in free and fearless atmosphere," Mattoo had said.

However, none of them had divulged details of what understanding the players had reached with HI, saying it was matter not for public consumption.

"It is between us and Hockey India and I won't comment on it before media," Rajpal had said.
