Happy with opportunities in senior team, want to make each one count: Indian women’s forward Sharmila

Indian Women’s Team forward Sharmila Devi, who has proved her mettle in the recent outings, wants to make the most of every opportunity she is getting with the senior side.
Be it her first outing for the Indian Team at the Tokyo Test Event in 2019 or the FIH Olympic Qualifiers where she showed her raw talent by scoring an important goal against the USA which propelled the team’s 5-1 victory in the first match.

“I played my first match for the senior side in 2019 and ever since then, I have been getting fantastic exposure with the team and I am happy to receive these opportunities and want to make each one count,” said Sharmila as per a press statement from Hockey India.
In India’s recent tour to Argentina, she scored twice for India in low-scoring games that proved crucial for the team against a top-quality side like Argentina who are ranked No.2 in the world.

The forward also highlighted the area which they will be working on when the core group returns to National Camp on 14 February 2021.
