I am a bit late to write on this topic, but as I am follower of a hockey, how can I miss to write on this? You are right, I am speaking about the recent hockey players’ strike for their extremely over-due incentives. In India cricket is more of an entertainment and a business than a sports. A cricketer gets lakhs for a match and annual income runs into crore, but on the other hand our hockey players just get few thousands for a match. Someone has rightly said hit hamper when the iron is hot, and our hockey players just followed that golden rule, and it paid dividend to them, although just verbally commitment. It was unfortunate time that they went on the strike, when world cup is just few days away, but would anyone have heard them if they decided any other time?

Assuming that I was in a bit too much of a hurry (I was), how can that sentence be improved? (Hint: think small.)
Although I agree it was unfortunate time for them to go on strike with the World Cup just few days away, but could there have been any other better time for them to air there grievances?
It was unfortunate that they decided to strike with the world cup just round the corner, but could there have been any other better time than this?
It was an easier fix than you thought, new2grammar. add one and subtract two, thus:
