The Manpreet Singh-led Indian men's hockey team will be in action in the Canada vs India Pool B match on August 3. The match will be played at the University of Birmingham ground. India and Canada are grouped with England, Ghana and Wales in Pool B.
The Indian men's hockey team will be hoping for a podium finish at the Commonwealth Games after narrowly missing out on a medal in the last edition in 2018, finishing fourth.
The Indian side, led by Manpreet Singh and Harmanpreet Singh, is not short on experience. Manpreet led the Indian team to a historic bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics last year. Harmanpreet finished as the highest goal-scorer in the recently concluded FIH Hockey Pro League.
The Canada men’s hockey team has not played a major international match since the Tokyo Olympics. They lost a number of multi-capped players to retirement after the Olympics and head coach Peter Milkovich will be looking for some steep learning curves to follow.
Eight players in the Canada men's hockey squad have fewer than 10 caps, although Taylor Curran, John Smythe and Keegan Pereira are among a handful of hugely experienced players.
