My Game

Why did you take to hockey ?

Hockey runs in my blood. My grandfather and father played at the national level. My uncle Subodh Khandekar was an international player. My older brother and I have played nothing but hockey.

Favourite moment

When we beat Pakistan in Karachi in 2004 to clinch the Junior Asia Cup. I got a hat-trick during that triumph.

Favourite player

Teun de Nooijer

One way how hockey has changed your life

Hockey has given me everything. I earn a livelihood out of hockey.

One thing you'd like to change about the sport

I want to see more playable pitches in our country.
