From being the chief playmaker for India to leading the side, Sardar has tried to fulfill all roles to the best of his abilities till date but his inability of score goals everytime he takes the turf continues to haunt the hardworking midfielder from Sirsa, who is the only Indian player to have featured in FIH All Star Team twice in succession.
"It (lack of goals) always pains me. Whenever I go out to play an international match, I always think today I might score a goal bit it doesn't happen that way. I really forgot when was the last time that I scored a goal," Sardar said in an interview.
But the hardworking India captain is not ready to throw in the towel yet. "I am not someone who will give hope. I am an optimistic person and I will keep on working hard on my game and hoep to score goals very soon. I will try to break that jinx in HIL 2014," he said.
"I will play more attacking hockey and try to help the forward line in attack and hope for a goal or two in the process," added Sardar, who will lead Delhi Waverriders against Jaypee Punjab Warriors tomorrow in the opening match of the second HHIL at the newly-built hockey stadium in Mohali.
