Head coach Graham Reid used Sreejesh and Pathak as alternate quarters in the two Pool D matches played so far against Spain and England. Sreejesh managed the Indian goal in the first and third quarters while Pathak did the same in the second and fourth quarters of the match.

Rourkela. Veteran PR Sreejesh feels it is a good coach’s strategy to have fellow India goalkeeper Krishan Bahadur Pathak replace him in the alternate quarter in the ongoing Hockey World Cup matches. Head coach Graham Reid used Sreejesh and Pathak as alternate quarters in the two Pool D matches played so far against Spain and England. Sreejesh managed the Indian goal in the first and third quarters while Pathak did the same in the second and fourth quarters of the match.

Sreejesh said, “We wanted to prepare together for the next stages of the World Cup. If ever something happens to one of the two goalkeepers, the other one has to be ready, so it is a good strategy.” The experienced goalkeeper said, “We are swapping quarters. He is getting experience while I have enough experience. This is a good thing for the future. Both India and England created chances but could not score. England got eight penalty corners and none could be converted. India also could not score on any of the four penalty corners.

“Somewhere, we need to look at what we can do, what changes we can make in penalty corners or other goal-scoring opportunities,” Sreejesh said. We should learn from the England match and prepare for the next match. “He said,” Wales is a very good team, they gave a good fight to Spain. We will analyze his game and plan accordingly.
