Deepak Thakur likely to stage comeback

New Delhi:

Striker Deepak Thakur, who missed the three-nation hockey tournament in Australia due to a leg injury, is all set to make a comeback to the national team after getting a call to attend the training camp ahead of the quadrangular Panasonic Cup in Hamburg, Germany later this month. Thakur has recovered completely after sustaining a hairline fracture on the leg during the Bombay Gold Cup hockey meet earlier this year and is one of the five players who would be attending the training camp in Delhi along with the 20 players who represented the side in the double-leg tournament in Australia. "The selection of players for the Hamburg tournament will be made on either June 17 or 18. We are unlikely to make much changes to the side that played in Australia," Indian Hockey Federation sources said today. India, who will leave for Germany on June 23, will kick-off their campaign in the three-day Panasonic tournament with a match against Argentina on June 27. Besides Thakur, the other four who would be attending the seven-day camp starting on June 16 are V S Vinay of Indian Airlines, Prabhdeep Singh of Punjab Police and Namdhari's Harpal Singh and Deedar Singh.
