The Indian women's hockey team will begin its Asia Cup 2022 campaign against Malaysia in Muscat, Oman on Friday. This will be the first extended tournament for the Indian team since the 4th-place finish in the Tokyo Olympics, as their Women's Asian Champions Trophy in December had ended abruptly due to COVID-19.
