"We were extremely pleased with our performance at the Olympic Test Event. Being unbeaten was a very heartening performance and especially playing toe-to-toe with World No. 2 Australia gave us a lot of confidence. The players are communicating very well on the field and, therefore, we have been able to win tournaments," said the goalkeeper.

Savita added that the World No. 10 Indian side is excited to take on England in September ahead of the FIH Olympic Qualifiers in November.

"Playing the World No. 4 England side will be a tough challenge in a five-match series, but if we continue to communicate well on the field then we will surely produce great results," Savita signed off.
