‘Good chance to learn from senior players,’ says young Pawan Rajbhar on being included in core probable group for National coaching camp
Hockey India announced the core probable group for the National Coaching camp starting on 3rd October 2022 to prepare for the FIH Hockey Pro League 2022-2023 season opener in Bhubaneswar. One of the new additions to the group of players was midfielder Pawan Rajbhar who had an impressive showing at the Hero Men’s Asia Cup 2022 in Jakarta earlier this year.
Speaking about his experiences of playing at the prestigious tournament, where the Indian team led by Captain Birendra Lakra won the Bronze medal, Pawan said that it was a memorable moment for him to don the Indian jersey for the first time.
“Getting the jersey for the first time was a proud moment for me. It was always my dream to play for India. I felt a lot of pressure on me in the first two games of being on television and being watched by hockey fans around the world. But after the first two games, my nerves settled down and I started enjoying myself,” the 24-year-old said.
Pawan had a good showing in the tournament as he scored four goals, and was also named the Player of the Match twice against Indonesia and Malaysia.
