Dhanraj Pillay says under Rani Rampal Savita Punia Indian womens hockey can create history in Tokyo Olympics

The legendary hockey player of his time, Dhanraj Pillai, believes that with the captaincy of Rani Rampal and the presence of goalkeepers like Savita Poonia, the Indian women’s hockey team is capable of producing shocking results in next year’s Tokyo Olympics. Pillai said in table tennis player Mudit Dani’s program ‘The Spotlight’, “We have the best captain as a queen.” I think Rani and goalkeeper Savita can lead the team to the podium. The team is working really hard, is preparing for the Olympics and I hope to do well. “

The Indian team, led by Rani, reached the podium in the 2018 Asian Games. Not only this, the team under his leadership made it to the Olympics for the second consecutive time. Savita, one of the team’s most experienced players, also played a key role in the Olympic qualifier.

Pillai, a four-time Olympian, also believes that hockey has changed a lot in terms of strength and physical ability. He said, “There is no similarity in the hockey that I have played and the kind of hockey these players have been playing for the last 10-15 years. Current players play based on their fitness abilities. “
