After a creditable show in the recently concluded FIH Pro League, the Indian Hockey team is back in the grind to prepare for the Birmingham Commonwealth Games scheduled to begin at the end of next month.
Hockey India has named 31 players for the camp under chief coach Graham Reid which will conclude on July 23.
India is grouped in Pool B along with hosts England, Canada, and Wales. The first match in the round-robin league is with Ghana on July 31.
Talking about the camp, chief coach Graham Reid said in a statement, "The players got a brief six-day break to go spend time with their families after the FIH Pro League matches in Europe. I believe this break has helped players return feeling fresh both mentally and physically. For 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."
Manpreet Singh will lead the Indian team at the Commonwealth Games.
