Biography

For two years he did not find a place in the star-studded Karnataka team despite his rich talent. A product of SAI Bangalore, Nikkin worked harder to smoothen the edges of his game and soon he was in the national camp. Before long he was in the Asia cup team in 2013.

 

For someone who moved from athletics to hockey only when he was 15 years the later development was phenomenal. With Oltsmans in the national camp, he came up well. He was there in the Hockey world league final. Nikkin also has the reputation of scoring a hat trick agains Australia in the Azlan Shah cup last year.
