Daavaa karta hu ki Asian Championships me behtar perform karenge : Kamlesh Khatik
On life post RuPay Pro Volleyball League <br><br>Life has changed, of course. My friends, in good humor, call me a celebrity now! And, the fame is new of course. The good thing is that we receive a lot of love from our fans, too. But the bigger thing is to utilize it and churn out better performances.<br><br>On the experience of playing alongside Carson Clark<br><br>It was amazing, honestly. We learn a lot every day and it is very, very important for the development of the younger players. And, there are effective differences in the way they train. They emphasize a lot on ground work, and despite being one of the best players in the world, still give in their best, be it at practice sessions or matches, or team meetings. To sum it up, they are very, very humble and crucially, calm.<br><br>On the pressure of playing in the league<br><br>To be honest, at the start of the tournament, there was pressure. But I had a few sessions with the coach and because of how the team shaped up, the nervousness turned to that sort of jittery excitement before the start of our first game. As the tournament progressed, I settled into my role and everything was good.<br><br>On Black Hawks’ season 1<br><br>A few results did not go our way and we ended up at second to last in the League. However, I can assure you that all of us put in our absolute best and will continue to do so in the second season. We are aiming to qualify for the semi-finals and then take it from there. In fact, whichever team I play for (after the auctions in August), I will work hard and ensure that others do, too.<br><br>On India’s chances at the Asian Championship<br><br>Haanji, daavaa karta hu ki Asian Championships me zaroor behtar perform karenge. Right now, I am at the senior camp at Bangalore, and we are all excited. Yes, the league has provided exposure, and we need to utilize it properly. We want to apply all the lessons the league offers, and bring out the best in us when we turn out in national colors. So, yes, hopefully, we will do well.
