New Delhi: The Walmiki brothers, Yuvraj and Devinder and their nephew Anup Amarpal will be a centre of attraction in the Hero Hockey India League as all three of them will represent three different franchisees.
While forward player Yuvraj will represent defending champions Delhi Waveriders, his younger brother, midfielder Devinder will play for Kalinga Lancers.
Amarpal will play as a forward for the newly assembled Dabang Mumbai.
The 23-year-old Yuvraj has a remarkable international career and has played several major international tournaments like Hockey World League Finals 2014 (India), FIH Olympic Qualifier 2012 (India), FIH Champions Trophy 2012 (Australia), Sultan Azlan Shah Cup 2012 (Malaysia) and Asian Champions Trophy 2011 (China).
Yuvraj had scored five goals for the 2014 champion team, Delhi Waveriders, where he played alongside captain Sardar Singh, Simon Child, Jason Wilson and Nicolas Jacobi.
Devinder had a satisfactory season with the Kalinga Lancers last season where the midfielder played alongside Gonzalo Peillat, Lucas Vila, Kiel Brown and Ryan Archibald and played a vital role for his team's strategies.
Unlike Yuvraj and Devinder, Amarpal will make his debut this year.
