Two time Hockey India League winner team Ranchi Rays have pulled up their socks for upcoming Hockey India League 2016.The team is going to start their practice with their training camp in Delhi starting from January 10.The training is kept in Delhi to avoid the headache of traveling from their hometown Ranchi to Delhi on the evening of their event.
The Ranchi Rays Coach Harendra Singh said “Having a camp in New Delhi suits us as we can avoid unnecessary traveling fatigue. If we had a camp in Ranchi, we would have had to come to New Delhi and then proceed to Lucknow for our first game on January 19. With fog an issue during January (it often results in delays) it makes sense for us to have our camp in New Delhi”.
Harendra has full confidence that their team will give their best to win the championship.All of the foreigner players are expected to join the camp by January 13 and the training camp will run till January 17 and the team will proceed for Lucknow on next day.
