Hockey India announced on Saturday the 33-member Indian Women’s Hockey Team that will resume training at the National Women’s Coaching Camp in SAI Bengaluru from July 1 to August 31. After wrapping up their FIH Hockey Pro League 2023/24 season in London and Antwerp, the team took a short break. Led by captain Salima Tete and vice-captain Navneet Kaur, the Indian squad, under the leadership of Chief Coach Harendra Singh, displayed moments of brilliance in closely contested matches against Argentina, Belgium, Germany, and Great Britain.

The selected squad features goalkeepers Savita, Bichu Devi Kharibam, Bansari Solanki, and Madhuri Kindo. The defenders chosen for the core group include Nikki Pradhan, Udita, Ishika Chaudhary, Monika, Ropni Kumari, Mahima Choudhary, Jyoti Chhatri, and Preeti.

In the midfield, the players picked are Salima Tete, Marina Lalramnghaki, Vaishnavi Vitthal Phalke, Neha, Jyoti, Edula Jyoti, Baljeet Kaur, Manisha Chauhan, Akshata Abaso Dhekale, and Ajmina Kujur.

The forwards named in the squad are Sunelita Toppo, Mumtaz Khan, Lalremsiami, Sangita Kumari, Deepika, Sharmila Devi, Navneet Kaur, Deepika Soreng, Preeti Dubey, Vandana Katariya, and Rutuja Dadaso Pisal.

Chief Coach Harendra Singh commented on the progress of the Indian Women’s Hockey Team saying, “We recently travelled to Antwerp and London for the Europe leg of the Pro League, and while the results were not in our favour, we learned a lot as a team. On several occasions, we were leading, and we proactively searched and threatened to score while looking for an equalizer. These are good signs to have in the initial stages of a rebuild, and I am sure the Indian Women’s Hockey Team will be a force to be reckoned with in the future.”
