Rajpal to lead Delhi Wizards

Former India skipper Rajpal Singh was named the captain of Wizcraft-owned franchise Delhi Wizards which will be one of the participating teams in the World Series Hockey (WSH).

“I am honoured to lead the Delhi Wizards. I hope to live up to the confidence shown in me by the franchise and give our fans an exciting season of hockey,” said the Arjuna awardee, who had led India to silver at Commonwealth Games, bronze at Asian Games and gold at the Asian Champions Trophy.

“I look forward to the valuable inputs from my team. My aim will be to get the best out of a very talented squad and I am confident that by doing so we will have a great chance of doing well in the tournament,” he added.

Rajpal was controversially dropped from the list of 48 probables announced by the Hockey India for the Olympic Games just after the conclusion of the Olympic qualifiers in New Delhi.
