Ikram, however, made it clear that FIH is not looking at reducing the speed of the ball with flicks. He said that a solution could be found to give the attacking team one or two more chances to strike the ball before the ball enters the circle. This will give teams more time to respond. Asked about the possible rule changes, Rohidas said, “I am not aware of what the FIH president said. This 29-year-old defender said that I have been one of the first runners in the Indian team. Whatever and whenever the team wants me, I can be the first pacer. I have no problem.

In the opening match at the new Birsa Munda Stadium in Rourkela, Rohidas was the first of the Indian players to start the run in three penalty corners taken by Spain. India did not concede any goals from penalty corners and won the match 2–0. Rohidas also scored a goal in this match. He gave the team great success by converting the rebound from the penalty corner.

India also defended eight penalty corners in the goalless draw against England. Rohidas’s role was important in this. Rohidas, who played 133 matches for the Indian team, said that for me it is not about taking too much risk. We have protective equipment like knee guards, hand gloves.
