BUOYED after a 5-0 whitewash of Belarus earlier this month, the Indian women’s hockey team skipper Rani Rampal on Thursday said she is confident of a top finish at the Hockey World League (HWL) Round 2, starting on April 1 in West Vancouver.

Besides India, the tournament will see the likes of Belarus, Canada, Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago, Chile and Uruguay vying for the top honours.

“We go in as the top-ranked team and we are confident we will finish in the top spot. We are going there 10 days before the start of the tournament so we will have enough time to get used to the turf, climate. We also play two practice matches which will help us fine tune further,” Rani said.
