The team has suffered a major setback in the form of Rupinder Pal Singh, the veteran drag-flicker of the Indian hockey team. The Hero Men’s Asia Cup will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia, on 13 May 2022. Team coach BJ Cariappa said,

“It is an unfortunate situation that Rupinder has suffered an injury during the training session and will no longer be a part of the Hero Asia Cup. Both Virender and Sunil are experienced players and have been part of the leadership of the team for many years. We will miss Rupinder Pal as a player but we have a lot of options in the pool. We have every single player in the team who are very excited to get a chance”.
