The Indian men’s hockey team is coached by Graham Reid, who was appointed to the role in January 2019. Reid has experience coaching at the highest level, having previously been head coach of the Australian men’s national team.
Under Reid’s guidance, India will be looking to build on their strong performance at the 2018 Asian Games, where they won a silver medal. The Hockey World Cup will be a tough test for the Indian team, but they will be hoping to use Reid’s experience to help them achieve success on the world stage.
