Bengaluru, Dec 31 (MNN) Hockey India has announced a list of 60 players for the men’s national camp starting here from January 3.

The players were shortlisted on the basis of their performances at the senior and junior national championships. The performances at domestic events sanctioned by Hockey India were also considered.

Players who were a part of the previous senior and junior core groups were judged on their performances at the international tournaments.

Indian men’s hockey team chief coach Graham Reid, under whom the team won its first Olympic medal (bronze) in 41 years, said that the established players will have to prove themselves at the camp at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) centre in the city to ensure they are retained in the final list.

“We are already in the new Olympic cycle now, so everything starts from zero. It’s really important to move ahead and start afresh,” Reid said.

The Hockey India list will be further pruned down to 33 players ahead of the FIH Pro League 2022 matches starting in February.

The FIH Pro League, which concludes in June, will be followed by the Commonwealth Games 2022 in July-August and Asian Games 2022 in September.

Reid said that it will be crucial for India to have a strong pool of 33 ahead of a challenging 2022 season.
