Harmanpreet entered the Indian Senior National Squad after winning the Junior World Cup in 2016 and was part of the Silver winning team in 2016 and 2018 Champions Trophy.
His story of being a successful drag flicker is something different. Being a farmer’s son he learn to drive a tractor at a very early age. The gear shifting stick was difficult to operate as it required a lot of power. Somehow he learned to operate that and his muscles and strength increased. And that is the reason he has the ability to change the direction of the shot at the last moment.
He had decided to play as a forward but destiny had some other thoughts and now he plays as a defender in the Indian National Team.
