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, who is also one of the captains of the Indian senior team'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.
