There weren’t many tournaments last year due to the pandemic and now with the international circuit resuming gradually, I’m looking to get much-needed match practice while playing here. This league has some top players and I look forward to a great season with the team,” the 22-year-old Mudit Dani added.
Mudit Dani becomes the second Indian to participate in the Danish League after Sharath Kamal
After breaking into the scene in 2018, the Indian paddler has risen to a whole new level in a span of two years. Mudit Dani won his first medal in the Us Open in 2019.
Thereafter he cracked into the top 200 ITFF rankings in April 2020. Dani took a leap of 600 ranks and as of now, he is the 6th highest ranked Indian player. Following his news of participating in the Danish league, he becomes the second Indian to take part in a top division Danish league.
With the Padmashree Awardee Achanta Sharath Kamal being the first Indian to play in the Danish top league. Therefore this is a great landmark for Mudit and it is needless to say that he will gain valuable experience after playing against the best players in the world.
Hence India’s rise in Table Tennis is growing steadily with players like Mudit Dani and G. Sathiyan playing in foreign leagues. With increasing recognition of the sport in India, more kids and youngsters will pursue table tennis as a passion and make our country proud in the future.
