Indian hockey team vice-captain and goalkeeper PR Sreejesh, the hero of Incheon Asian Games final against Pakistan, was honoured by Mahendra Singh Dhoni on behalf of Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) for his performance in the summit clash of the continental event.

India cricket captain Dhoni presented a memento to Sreejesh on behalf of KCA. KCA president T C Mathew was among those present at the event.

The hockey custodian from Kerala later told reporters that he was delighted to receive the memento from Dhoni and would be at the stadium to cheer the Indian team when they take on the West Indies in the first of the five ODIs against West Indies.

Sreejesh produced breathtaking saves in the shoot-out to help India end its 16-year gold medal draught in the Asian Games, which helped the country earn a direct berth to the 2016 Rio Olympics.
