The team also includes three 17-year-old's in Parth Salunkhe, Priya Gurjar and Ridhi Por.

Why are the Tokyo Olympians not competing at the World Championships?
The four archers who represented India at the Tokyo Olympics are not competing at the World Championships in Yankton owing to their poor outing at the national trials. All four of Deepika Kumari, Atanu Das, Pravin Jadhav and Tarundeep Rai performed way below the expectations to miss out on the World Championships squad.
