New Delhi: Ace drag-flicker Sandeep Singh said that he is ready to give "more than hundred percent for any franchise" that picks him during the upcoming Hockey India League (HIL) auctions which will take place on Sunday.
"Obviously, one would like to play for the Punjab franchise as there is a certain city connect but this HIL and I am ready to play for any of the five franchise. Whether I play for Ranchi or Delhi, I will give my hundred percent," Sandeep told PTI on the eve of the auctions on Saturday.
For him, the HIL means a new beginning in Indian hockey which will help the nation get a strong hockey team. "A competitive HIL means that India will be able to field a stronger team in the international tournaments. We have done fairly well in the Champions Trophy and HIL will only help the players get better playing alongside Teun de Nooijer, Mohammed Imran, Jamie Dwyer to name a few.
