“I was desperate to get back on the industry. I was desperate to get back into the countrywide crew. When I got wounded, when I did the medical procedures, I produced a promise to myself: I will don the India jersey yet again. When I got back to my feet, when I lifted weights for the initially time, when I skilled for the initially time, this promise was often there at the back of my brain. The motto to work hard and get back that India jersey in no way died in me,” Sreejesh stated.
“This was a period of time in which I had to exhibit myself how tricky I am. I essential this to show to myself far more than anybody else,” he added.
India will compete with Belgium, Japan and hosts New Zealand at Tauranga and Hamilton in the event, starting January 17.
