Initially, India was assigned a team and the two main stars Aditi Ashok and Tvesa Malik were invited. But, according to the Women’s Golf Association of India, they expressed regret. They were replaced by Diksha Dagar and Gaurika Bishnoi.

WGAI then made a strong case for a second team, from their Hero Order of Merit players. The application was granted and Amandeep Drall and Vani Kapoor, the top two in the 2020-21 Combined Order of Merit, were chosen.

The four players have expressed their state of preparation. They have all been regulars on the WPGT and have also played on the Ladies European Tour, as well as making debuts in South Africa and Australia.
