New Delhi: The 2017 Asia Cup is being billed as the start of a new beginning in Indian hockey. The coming together of Sjoerd Marijne and Manpreet Singh coach-captain is expected to answer long-standing questions like India's inability to win major tournaments.

The eight-team tournament in Dhaka will serve as the perfect testing ground for the Indian team under a new coach. India were runner-up to South Korea in the last edition four years ago. This time, the Manpreet Singh-led outfit will hope to do one better than 2013.
