The Indian team will aim to end their 43-year Hockey World Cup drought when they start their campaign against South Africa in Bhubaneswar on Wednesday.

The hosts’ Pool C encounter at the Kalinga Stadium will be the showpiece event’s second game.

Eight-time Olympic champions India’s only glory at the World Cup came way back in 1975 when Ajit Pal Singh and his men’s created history for the past masters of the game.

Since then the Indian team has failed to match the standards of the Europeans -- Netherlands, Germany -- and Australia, who have been ruling the game for over four decades now.

In the last 10 editions since its maiden triumph in 1975, India’s best performance was a fifth-place finish at the 1982 edition in Mumbai (then Bombay).
