Jalandhar: Former Australian hockey player Barry Dancer believes the upcoming Hockey India League (HIL) would provide an opportunity to young domestic players to showcase their talent and help the country regain its past glory in the sport.
The 60-year-old Dancer, who is the coach of Jaypee Punjab Warriors team in the HIL, is confident of a positive impact of the event on India's future performances.
"Hockey India has taken a significant step by organising a league. This would help youngsters as they would learn from other senior players from different countries. In two to three years time, not only India but other countries would also benefit from this league," Dancer said told reporters during an event on Tuesday.
