NEW DELHI, JAN 09- A new-looking Indian Hockey team would be  play for glory on home turf under new coach Terry Walsh in the inaugural Hero Hockey World League Final. It will open its campaign against higher-ranked England at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium, here tomorrow. 

India is lucky to be one of the participating teams in the HWL Final. Having failed to qualify directly, India managed a place in the event by the virtue of being the host.

The HWL Final will provide the Sardar Singh-led side an opportunity to prove to the world that Indian hockey is on course to regaining its past glory.

The Indians finished a disappointing sixth in the HWL semi-finals in Rotterdam, but the HWL Final provides the eight-time Olympic champions a perfect stage to prove their detractors wrong.
