The Indian national women's team will start their SAFF Women's Championships defense on Wednesday, September 7, against arch-rivals Pakistan. The Blue Tigeresses are the most successful side in the competition, having won all five previous editions of the tournament in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2019.

India, coached by Suren Chhetri, have been drawn in Group A, alongside Pakistan, Maldives, and Bangladesh. Meanwhile, Group B comprises hosts Nepal, Bhutan, and Sri Lanka.

Teams will face one another once in each group. The top-two sides from each group will then advance to the semi-finals, with the final scheduled on September 19.

Chhetri earlier underlined during a press conference that defending the championship will be much more of a challenge than winning it. He stressed:

"To win a championship is easier compared to defending a championship."

India have flown to Kathmandu with the strongest possible squad, with the likes of Aditi Chauhan, Ashalata Devi, and Dangemei Grace in their ranks.
