The Indian men's hockey team had a remarkable outing in the recently concluded 2021-22 FIH Pro League. They finished third with 30 points behind The Netherlands and Belgium.

The Men in Blue have now retired to practice ahead of the CWG 2022.

The Manpreet Singh-led side have commenced training at the National Camp today (June 27) at the SAI Centre in Bengaluru. They are preparing for the 2022 CWG, which is slated to be held between July 28 and August 8.

Hockey India (HI) listed 31 players for the national camp, which will conclude on July 23. Speaking about the camp, Team Chief Cocah Graham Reid said:

"The players got a bride six-day break to go spend time with thir families after the FIH Pro League matches in Europe. I believe this break has helped players return feeling fresh both mentally and physically."

He further added:

"The next three weeks, we are going to focus on improving our performance in FIH Pro League where we had the opportunity to play against the best teams in the world. I have recognized a few areas that we can do better and be consistent at."
