Moreover, Harmanpreet Singh has been named as the captain, and Amit Rohidas as the vice-captain for the announced Indian hockey team. Apart from them, Manpreet Singh, who won the historic bronze medal for India in the Tokyo Olympics, was seen to be a part of the team this time. The 18 best players out of 33 players were included in the team after a formal two-day trial at the SAI Centre in Bangalore. The Indian squad for the Hockey Men’s World Cup 2023 has a great mix of young and experienced players, which will strengthen the team in the tournament.

“The World Cup is the most important “Hockey Only” tournament there is. A home World Cup puts extra importance and extra pressure on this event like no other. Every country chooses the best team they believe is available to them at the time and tries to provide their team with the best preparation they can. We have also tried to do both with the selection of our Indian World Cup team, choosing a mixture of experienced and younger exciting players who can provide something special.”

Chief Coach Graham Reid said
