IND vs ESP Live Score Hockey World Cup 2023: Viren Rasquinha on India's frontline

"In the midfield we have a strong and experienced midfielder, captain Manpreet Singh, there's Hardik who's had a great tournament. Young Vivek Sagar Prasad, he's improving by leaps and bounds. Nilakanta Sharma, he's a live wire on the pitch and I think in the forward line Abhishek is the young forward that has really impressed me for the last one year. He's made his debut a little over a year back but i will say that he's really established his place in the team, he's had an excellent Commonwealth Games and of course we have experienced players like Mandeep and Lalit Kumar Upadhyay. Overall, it is a strong balanced team and in a team sport like Hockey everyone has to do their role and if everyone plays their role in the best way possible it really enhances India's chance to get a medal here", Rasquinha said

"I think some of the key players for India at this World Cup are going to be starting with the goalkeepers and defence. Really, both goalkeepers Sreejesh and Krishan Pathak they are going to play a very important role now with this belief that if you want to win tournaments your goalkeeper has to have an excellent tournament. So there is going to be a lot of burden of responsibility on the shoulders of Sreejesh and Krishan Pathak. Of course Harmanpreet Singh in the defence has such an important role to play, he's been nominated the FIH world player of the year. He's been an excellent defender for India for the last few years. Obviously, his penalty corner conversions as well are very very important," said Rasquinha.
