The star custodian’s equipment is expected to be heavier than his teammates as goalkeepers have heavy protective gears which includes upper body protection, thick pads, gloves and a helmet.

An angry Indian hockey team goalkeeper PR Sreejesh on Tuesday vented his ire on airline career Air Asia, which penalised him for excess baggage which included his sports equipment as he was returning after winning Asian Champions Trophy beating Pakistan 3-2 in the finals.

An irate Sreejesh took to twitter to express his disappointment.

“Extra charges for the sports equipment bag which come below 15 kg?? Are they expecting me to carry make up kit ??..funny concept @Air Asia,” Sreejesh tweeted posting the a screenshot of the penalty receipt.

The star custodian’s equipment is expected to be heavier than his teammates as goalkeepers have heavy protective gears which includes upper body protection, thick pads, gloves and a helmet unlike outfield players who need to carry their hockey sticks.
