Bangalore:

Spurred by the Australian success, veteran Dhanraj Pillay, the best-known face in the Indian hockey team in recent years, today indicated that he was looking to extend his international career by at least two to three years. "Now, I feel I can easily play for the next two to three years," said Pillay, who had in recent months hinted that he was close to taking a decision on retirement. Captaining the side, Pillay guided the team to victory in the second leg of the three-nation hockey tournament at Sydney, beating Australia in the final. Pillay said the tournament in Australia had done wonders for him and he was feeling totally fit. He did not feel exhausted even once and gave the credit to trainer Sampath Kumar, who, he said, did a fine job. (PTI)
