Playing for Delhi Waveriders for the third year in a row, veteran midfielder Gurbaj Singh is all set to replicate his last two seasons' success in the upcoming Hero Hockey India League, starting from January 22.
Gurbaj is once again looking forward to rub shoulders with some of the best players of the world and grab his share of scoring opportunities this season.
"I am aiming to encounter a tough fight in this season of the Hero Hockey India League. The team is fully prepared to face the challenge without building up any pressure. Playing for the Delhi-based franchisee is surely one of the best opportunities as we get to learn a lot and that is what holds significance for us," Gurbaj said.
"The league is going to be very challenging as all the teams are equipped with the best players from around the world. With players like Sardar Singh, Akashdeep Singh and Tim Drummond in our team, I endeavour to retain the title this year too," he added.
In the inaugural session of the HIL, Gurbaj was named the Man of the Match in a match where Delhi Waveriders defeated Ranchi Rays 5-2. In the second season of the league, the young Indian player won the Man of the Match title twice by displaying a striking performance.
