Star forward Mamta Kharab, Saba Anjum and full-back Binita Toppo made a comeback to the Indian squad for the women's Asia Cup hockey tournament, starting in Delhi on Sunday.

The trio, who missed the Afro-Asian Games due to injury, were included in the 18-member list released by the Indian Womens' Hockey Federation on Tuesday.

The team, led by Surajlata Devi, will launch its campaign against Malaysia in Group A on Sunday.

World championship bronze medallists China and Kazakhstan are the other teams in the group.
