Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the 2017 Hockey India League and we have a cracking contest on our hands as Dabang Mumbai take on Ranchi Rays in the opening encounter of this tournament. 
...
The fifth edition of the 2017 Hockey India League kicks off today with two-time champions Ranchi Rays (previously known as Ranchi Rhinos) taking on Dabang Mumbai, in what can be billed as a David vs Goliath battle. Dabang Mumbai have never won the competition in their history, while Ranchi Rays have always been a top side.However, the fifth edition of Hockey India League could be a lot different than any of the previous editions, given the high influx of foreign players, including and especially Europeans and Australians. India have also performed commendably in 2016, winning Asian Champions Trophy and Junior World Cup, which is likely to give players a sense of tremendous confidence.
