Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Friday introduced a Rs 10 lakh reward every for Amit Rohidas and Nilam Sanjeep Xess – each gamers are from Odisha – and are part of the India squad for FIH Odisha Males’s Hockey World Cup 2023. Each Rohidas and Xess made it to the Indian crew that may start its marketing campaign towards Spain on Friday. Tokyo Olympic bronze medallist Rohidas can be deputy to Indian crew captain Harmanpreet Singh. He has 125 worldwide caps to his identify, however the defender is at all times used instead throughout penalty corners and has scored 18 worldwide objectives.
From being an in-and-out participant to turning into the vice-captain of the Indian hockey crew, Amit Rohidas has quietly risen up the ranks with some excellent performances lately. Amit Rohidas made his senior India debut in 2013 but it surely took him some time to turn out to be the crew’s mainstay in defence.
Guarding the objective in defence with Rohidas is native lad Sanjeep Xess. With 30 worldwide caps and 5 objectives Sanjeep Xess, who hails from Kadobahal village, a number of kilometres away from the World Cup venue, will look to enthuse the house crowd together with his presence on the Birsa Munda Hockey Stadium in Rourkela.
It is going to be a proud second for Sundargarh, ‘the Cradle of Hockey’, when the 2 gamers will go to the center of the pitch donning Indian jerseys. The group at Birsa Munda Hockey Stadium in Rourkela is definitely going to get behind Rohidas and Sanjeep Xess each time they obtain the ball.
Earlier, CM Patnaik met the Indian Hockey Staff and dedicated to award Rs 1 crore for every member of the Indian Hockey Staff in the event that they win the Hockey World Cup 2023.
The marquee hockey occasion can be held in Bhubaneswar and Rourkela from January 13 to January 29.
India will search a podium end and the expectations are far better this time, notably after the crew’s stupendous efficiency on the Olympic Video games Tokyo 2020 the place they ended a 41-year-long wait to face on the rostrum once more by bagging the bronze medal.
