The Indian men's hockey team will take on team Germany in a two-legged tie in the FIH Pro League 2021/22 at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar this week.

Hockey India (HI) named the 22-member Indian men's hockey squad ahead of the German challenge, which will be led by skipper Amit Rohidas. Harmanpreet Singh will serve as the vice-captain.

The FIH Pro League matches between the two teams, which were earlier postponed owing to the spike in the number of COVID-19 positive cases in team Germany, will now take place on April 14 and 15, respectively.

The Indian men's team is currently placed first in the FIH Pro points table with 21 points from 10 matches, while the Germans are just behind them with 17 points from eight matches.

Here's a look at the Season 3 Men's FIH Hockey Pro League Team Standings, as on 6th April 2022. India move to the top of the table after collecting 5 out of the possible 6 points against England, with Germany and Netherlands following closely behind.

Speaking about the team selection, India's chief coach Graham Reid said:

"This year's FIH Pro League has provided us with great opportunities to try different combinations and tactics. We have recognised what works and, more importantly, what areas we need to improve on. This week against Germany is the last leg of our home games for this year and we are looking forward to two more world-class encounters once again. Germany are always an extremely tough opponent and given where we both are on the ladder it will be important for us to finish this week with as many points as possible to remain at the top of the points table."
