New Delhi, 03 November 2019: Hockey India today named the 33 Core Probables list for the upcoming Indian Junior Men's National Coaching Camp scheduled to begin on Monday, 4 November 2019.

The Indian Junior Men's Team put up a fantastic performance at the 9th Sultan of Johor Cup earlier this month, beating Malaysia, New Zealand and Australia in the competition. India finished runners-up after going down fighting against Great Britain in the Final.

The Core Probables list includes Goalkeepers Pawan, Prashant Kumar Chauhan and Sahil Kumar Nayak, Defenders Suman Beck, Pratap Lakra, Sanjay, Yashdeep Siwach, Mandeep Mor, Parampreet Singh, Dinachandra Singh Moirangthem, Nabin Kujur, Sharda Nand Tiwari, Niraj Kumar Waribam.

The Indian Junior Men's Core Probable Group has been playing together for over a year now and they will certainly look to work on a few aspects of their game to become an even better side in the upcoming tournaments. "The Indian team played with a lot of heart at the 9th Sultan of Johor Cup. The players executed their plans well and showed a lot of discipline on the field. We were disappointed to finish runners-up, but this national coaching camp will give us a chance to focus on getting into good positions and creating goal-scoring opportunities. The group needs to improve on passing the ball and team coordination as well," said stated David John, High Performance Director, Hockey India.
