Bengaluru: Hockey India has unveiled the 33-member Indian Women’s Hockey Team that will continue its training camp at SAI Bangalore until May 16.

The team comprises four goalkeepers, twelve defenders, eleven midfielders, and six forwards. Notable inclusions are 22-year-old Marina Lalramnghaki from Hockey Mizoram and 25-year-old Manisha Chauhan from Manipur Hockey, both impressing in the 14th Hockey India Senior Women National Championship. Additionally, Preeti Dubey returns to the national setup after catching the selectors’ eye during the assessment camp, marking her comeback since the Hockey World League Semi Final in 2017.
