Veteran defender Dilip Tirkey has been the surprise omission from the list of India's 48
probables announced for international hockey events spread over the next four years.

The 30-year-old, whose future has been a subject of
speculation, was last seen in action during India's doomed
Olympic qualifying campaign in Chile.

He picked up an ankle injury thereafter and recently
returned to domestic hockey with the Muruguppa Cup in Chennai.

In between, there were reports of Tirkey contemplating
retirement but the two-time Olympian has so far denied any such
rumours.
