With immense coverage of cricket, football and other common sports in our country, have you ever wondered how many different sports are really being played in India?Yes, there are some rare games that are being played and it's rather surprising to find out that these games have national teams representing our country and excelling. But what’s more surprising is that we don’t even know of the existence of such sports.Forget about the condition of the players who represent our country, the people of our country have no idea about the names of such sports, which is a bit of a shame for us because these sportsmen love what they do! Let’s have a look at 5 such “uncommon” sports in which India has a fully functioning national team:

#1 Cycle Polo

This sport is exactly the same as the regular Polo game, but except for the horses, the players are on cycles.

Cycle Polo is one of the least known games that is being played in India. It hasn’t had much recognition but has been certified by the government and is funded wholely by them.

A team also represents the country for various world championships, and in the 8 World Championships, the Indian team has had an excellent record, winning 4 golds and 2 Bronze medals.

They have put up a good winning streak, but do we know about it?
