The Indian team looks in high spirits after a brilliant performance in the Champions trophy last month.
Being a senior player, Sardar will have a big role to play if India are to win a medal in the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Sreejesh has credited his team for the Champions Trophy silver and said India should finish among the top six in Rio.
Sushil Chanu's appointment as the captain of the women's team has been a good move given the kind of form she is in.
Indian women's team have qualified for the first time in Olympics after stellar show at the Hockey World League in 2015.
They'll hope to put up a good show and win a medal at Rio.
