New Delhi, Aug 30 : The Indian Men's Hockey Team's experienced Goalkeeper PR Sreejesh, who was rested for the Olympic Test Event, believes that the Indian team has the right balance for the upcoming FIH Olympic Qualifiers. The Indian Men's and Women's Hockey teams have won their respective FIH Series Finals in June before triumphing in the Olympic Test Events in August. "It's been amazing to see the way our team has performed in the last couple of months.

Our victory in the Olympic Test Event showed that we have an excellent bench strength since most of the senior players were rested for the tournament. The team has the right balance at the moment and we are confident of booking a place in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics," said Sreejesh. The Goalkeeper added that the World No 5 Indian Men's Hockey Team is looking forward to the tour of Belgium in September as the side will be able to finetune a few more aspects of their game ahead of the FIH Olympic Qualifiers in November.
