Congratulations! Team, that’s all we can say to them. India registered an emphatic 3-2 victory over arch-rivals
Pakistan to lift the Asian Champions Trophy hockey title in a thrilling summit and with this they presented perfect Diwali gift to us.
Well, it was a team work but then there are some brilliant performers, who gave outstanding performance to make India win such a big title that too aginst Pakistan.
Here, are the list of men who turned this dream into reality:
1. *Sreejesh Parattu Raveendran* (GK/Capt): He is one of the finest goalkeepers that Indian hockey has ever seen, We muat say Sreejesh is the heartbeat of this team. Sreejesh was an important factor taking India to the finals as he made important saves against South Korea in the semi-finals and eventually made a save in the penalty shootout that saw India through.
2. *Akash Chikte* (GK): An upcoming goal-keeper, Akash has impressed in the few opportunities that he has got so far. His biggest moment came in the final of the Asian Champions Trophy as he had to stand in, in place of injured Sreejesh. He did a fantastic job under pressure.
3. *Rupinder Pal Singh* is India’s penalty-corner specialist and he did justice to that tag by finishing the tournament as the highest goal-scorer with 11 goals.
4. *Sardar Singh*: He is the best player in the field. Sardar’s ability to understand match situations and play accordingly is his biggest strength.
5. *Kothajit Singh*: A mid-fielder player who has the knack of scoring important goals, Kothajit’s biggest moment so far
has been his goal against Pakistan in the 2014 Asian Games Final, a match which India won to win the Gold medal.
There were many more players who contributed in order to win against Pakistan.
Entire India is pouring their wishes on the team. Last team arrived in Bengleru airport and received heartiest welcome from the people waiting there for them.
