Sreejesh was at his prime in the World Cup held at The Hague from May 21 to June 15. “Our practice session today was on the defence line-up and with the likes of Gurbaj Singh, VR Raghunath, Rupinder Pal Singh, Birendra Lakra and Kothajit Singh. We are confident of being a wall to the opponents,” said Sardar.
“We are hoping that Sreejesh again stands up and delivers like the way he proved himself at the World Cup. It is a sense of pride for me and the entire team when we see Sreejesh motivate all of us. This time the team wants to stand up to the expectations of Sreejesh,” he added.
