Bengaluru, December 13: Olympic bronze medallist Indian men's hockey team will start their new cycle with a bunch of youngsters aiming to prove their mettle when they take the field in the Asian Champions Trophy 2021.

India have won this prestigious event thrice since its inception in 2011 and have won the previous two editions held in 2016 in Kuantan, Malaysia and 2018 in Muscat, Oman.
