Hero Hockey India League table: End of the road for Kalinga, Mumbai

With 30 points from 9 games, the Uttar Pradesh Wizards and the Ranchi Rays are tied at the top. But a superior goal difference (8) has helped the Wizards retain their first position on the Hero Hockey India League table. Not far behind, Punjab Warriors have 29 points from 8 games and have a very good chance to finish the league stage at the top. Defending champs Delhi Waveriders stay at the fourth position with 23 points from 9 games.

New-look Dabang Mumbai (14 pts from 9 games) failed to make an impact in this edition of the Hero Hockey India League as they managed to win just one game out of nine. They are sure to wind up the league at the bottom spot but will look to end their campaign with a victory in their last league game. Dabang Mumbai will face Punjab Warriors and the Mumbaikars could well spoil the party for Punjab if they beat them in Mohali. A defeat for Punjab might deny them a first-place finish on the league table.

Kalinga Lancers too failed to cater to their fans’ expectations as the string of consecutive losses hurt them badly. After a big win in the very first game of the tournament, Kalinga Lancers lost 6 games in a row. They then saw a painful 2-2 draw against Delhi Waveriders which nullified their chances of making it to the semi-finals. However, Kalinga ended their season 3 journey on a high as they defeated both Dabang Mumbai and Delhi Waveriders with a score of 2-1. They finished the league with 21 points from 10 games.

Contenders for player of the tournament

2. Akashdeep Singh (Delhi Waveriders)

Young Indian forward Akashdeep Singh has yet again played an important role in Delhi Waveriders’ semi-final qualification. With a great set of skills and unmatchable pace, he has scored 4 field goals for the Waveriders and he will continue to threaten the opposition in the Hockey India League.

3. Sandeep Singh (Punjab Warriors)

He also has 22 tackles to his name which is a very good number at the HIL.
