Terming the revolt by the national hockey players a "right move", former Olympian Dhanraj Pillay revealed on Sunday that he had also tried to stand up against the authorities but could not gather enough support.

"Whatever has happened is right. The revolt came late but was a right move. If the hockey administrators can spend lakhs over a foreign coach, why can't the Indian players get their dues cleared?" Pillay told reporters here.

"I had tried to revolt against the administrators during my playing days but could not get enough support," he added.

The Indian players on Friday boycotted the ongoing World Cup preparatory camp in Pune for an indefinite period in protest against non-payment of their dues.

The dispute, however, was resolved last night after a marathon meeting between six senior members of the national team and the top Hockey India officials, here.
