India’s starting XI against Bangladesh

Motivated by an emphatic 5-1 win over Japan, Indian men’s hockey team will look to push victory juggernaut forward when it takes on hosts Bangladesh in their second Pool A match of the Asia Cup hockey tournament in Dhaka.

India’s chief coach Sjoerd Marijne, who took the reigns of the Indian team from fellowman, Roelant Oltmans, seemed content with India’s victory.

“As a coach, I am always critical so I have to say I am not 100 per cent happy with how we played. I believe we can do better but this was our first match and now that the team is done with shaking off the initial jitters, I think we can focus on improved performance in the next game,” Marijne said on Thursday.
