Goalkeeper Helen Mary will lead India's challenge in the absence of regular skipper Surajlata Devi in the six-nation women's hockey competition -- the K T International tournament -- to be played at Seongnam, Korea, from June 7.

The Indian Women's Hockey Federation, which announced an 18-member team on Thursday, said Surajlata was not considered for selection since she did not attend the camp because of her recent marriage.

The team, under chief coach M K Kaushik, was picked following a selection trial on May 26 and 27 at the National stadium.

The tournament also involves China, England, Ireland, Korea and Malaysia.

Officials: M K Kaushik (chief coach), Anurita Saini (manager), Y S Chauhan (assistant coach), P S M Chandran (doctor), Rajinder Kumar (video cameraman).

IWHF secretary Amrit Bose will accompany the team as a judge while P S Anupama will go as an umpire.

India open its campaign in the competition with a match against Malaysia on June 9, followed by games against England the next day, Korea (June 12), Ireland (June 13) and China (June 15).
