Dec 13: Indian senior players has shown very much interest in the former Indian captain Dhanraj Pillay, to be the chief national coach of the Indian men’s hockey team, as the experience and his class in the forward, will do immense wonders for the team in the future. Currently, Indian team is without any coach since the Guangzhou Asian Games, where the nation won bronze in that tournament. While the national coach Harendra Singh has withdrawn from being the coach of the national side, after India losing to the Malaysians in the semi finals at Asian Games and chief coach Jose Brasa’s coach tenure has expired and is unlikely to be renewed.

As the position for the coach is being going on, Dhanraj has given his name to be the chief national coach for the team, which was backed by the senior players. “Dhanraj has been the role model for everyone that’s for sure. Everyone has grown up watching him playing. He is having more knowledge than anybody else. Certainly, he would be the only one, who would know the requirements very well needed for the team,” said the Indian mid fielder ace Arjun Halappa. “He is undoubtedly a very good option. He knows this game good enough, as he is still playing this game and so he is enough aware about the modern techniques and strategies,” added Halappa, who is being chosen in the Asian All Stars team.

Giving support to his teammate and India’s drag flicker Dhanajay Mahadik said that, Dhanraj and Singapore based former Indian centre forward Jude Felix are very choices for the vacant post. “It would be great advantage for the team, if the coach is Indian and more importantly the former captain, as they can understand the pressure better. As far Dhanraj is concerned, he is very good with his nature and behaviour and players have a very good understanding with him, besides that Felix is also a better option,” added Dhananjay.

Hello everyone this is Ronak Parekh and I’m currently student of S.Y.B.M.M. I’m 20 years old from Mumbai. I choose my career in B.M.M because I always wanted to do something which is of my interest. And my passion has always been sports especially cricket and F1. I really want to be linked with sports in my future. B.M.M course gives the opportunity in journalism from where I can move to sports category. When I was child I always used to play and watch cricket a lot which usually most of the people does. I gained my interest in F1 due to only one man and that was none other than seven time world champion Michael Schumacher. Actually I’m also very passionate about cars so it is really fun when I see this sport. Today I’m really excited about getting an opportunity to do internship for three months with the sports mirror, where I will have full freedom to express my views and opinions regarding every sport. I definitely will try my best to write the articles as good as possible which would be worth interesting for readers. I really whole heartedly thanking the sports mirror again for giving me this vital opportunity and I promise I will make the most of it.
