【文本】

After a meeting between the players and hockey's governing body over the weekend, there was hope that a truce had been reached.

But on Monday the whole team refused to go to its world cup training camp in the western city of Pune.

This has angered the governing body, Hockey India, and its president AK Mattoo has told the local media that it will consider suspending the team if the issue is not resolved soon.

One senior player Prabhjot Singh told the BBC that the players stood united and would not train until they were paid what is owed to them from previous tournaments.

The crisis comes as India prepares to host the world cup in just a few weeks.

Along with rival Pakistan, the country is in the same pool as Australia, Spain, England and South Africa in the 12-nation tournament.
India won the World Hockey Cup only once back in 1975.
The team didn't even qualify for the last tournament.

And despite hockey being India's national game, it is cricket that drives the passion of the country and that's where all the money goes.
