Harmanpreet Singh will lead the squad in the competition.

The Indian men's hockey team will begin their campaign in the FIH Men's Pro League 2022-23 in Bhubaneshwar on Friday. India will play doubleheader matches against New Zealand and Spain. The first game will be played against New Zealand at the Kalinga Stadium on Friday followed by the second game against Spain on Sunday.

India finished third in the last season and fourth in the 2020-21 season. Harmanpreet Singh will lead the team in the competition with Manpreet Singh alongside him as the Vice Captain. Manpreet led the Indian men's hockey team to a bronze medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and a silver at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Harmanpreet Singh finished the Birmingham Games with nine goals in his name alongside Gareth Furlong of Wales. Harmanpreet has been a prolific goalscorer for the team and a lethal player in the penalty corners. Coach Graham Reid has put his trust in the 26-year-old to captain the squad for the first four games. He was also named as the FIH Player of the Year for two consecutive years.

The team will be looking to finish in the top two this time. Coach Graham Reid's squad will be playing their first four games in Bhubhaneshwar and India's next match will be played in May 2023 after the Men's Hockey World Cup in January. The Indian team will play its final FIH Pro League home fixtures in Rourkela before travelling abroad to complete the season.
