It’s an honor for players to represent their countries internationally and if they opt the country’s national game for this purpose, it really makes them extra proud but in the end, it always matters what results they are managing for their country, if they play with proud and courage and get their flags to the peak of that game then they do not only become the source of raising their flag high in the world but people around the world also praise them for making themselves a proud ambassador through their national games.

So we have a thought to bring this interesting info for our readers about the countries specific achievements for their national games, we selected few famous countries for this purpose and so far we will discuss only world title in our findings. We really hope that you will find it interesting and knowledgeable.

PAKISTAN – Field hockey is a national game of Pakistan and since independence Pakistan have become world champions four times and with two time runner-up, last time they managed this title in 1994 but since then, Pakistan could not even play a final of world cup but still this country is on top with total of four world title of this game which really shows that how much importance have been there for this game for the people of Pakistan.
INDIA- Field hockey is also a national game of India but since independence, they could manage only one title for this game in 1971, there might be a reason that Cricket is a famous sport in India in which India have three world title and with lot of sponsors and attraction in this game, people love to put their energies in this game more than in any other game including their national game but still we see that India have been doing excellent job through different tournaments and leagues to support their national game but so far all their efforts are not really bringing fruitful or desire results.

United Kingdom (ENGLAND) – Cricket is a national game of England but if we see the chart of world title winners of this game, we see that despite playing world cup finals three times; England could not be able to win a single world cup. They could manage to get only one victory in T20 world cup in 2010.

USA- United States of America – Baseball is a national game of USA and so far they have made them world champions four times with seven times runner up for this game which shows the interest and love with this game by the people of United States of America.

China – Table Tennis is a national game of China and when we see the chart of winners at world level. We will not get surprise to see that since 1980 around 95% titles have won by China either men’s or women’s and not only the world cups, they are also on top in Olympics as well with many gold medals. It really shows that how much they are sincere with their national game.
