5 young guns to look out for from the Dabang Mumbai squad
#3 Gurmail Singh
Indian international Gurmail Singh was bought by the Mumbai-based franchise Dabang Mumbai at the recently concluded CIL Hockey India League 2016 auction. The Alphas had to fight hard to secure the 23-year-old defender's signature at the auction outbidding Jaypee Punjab Warriors and Delhi Waveriders. With a price tag of US $81,000, Gurmail became the second costliest Indian to be bought at the auction.
The Haryana-based defender, with 33 appearances, is an established Indian international. He believes his side is a formidable unit, defensively, with the addition of solid Australian defenders like Matthew Swann and Andrew Philpott, and can go on to challenge for the title.
