Goalkeeping stalwart Savita will be the captain, while Deep Grace Ekka will be the vice-captain of the Indian women's team for the upcoming FIH Hockey Pro League games against Belgium, Argentina and USA.

Hockey India on Saturday named a 24-member side for the matches to be played in Belgium and Netherlands in June ahead of the FIH Hockey Women's World Cup.

India are scheduled to play hosts Belgium on June 11 and 12, followed by matches against Argentina on June 18 and 19 and the United States on June 21 and 22.

While the team list includes Junior World Cup stars Bichu Devi Kharibam, Ishika Chaudhary, Akshata Abaso Dhekale, Baljeet Kaur, Sangita Kumari and Deepika, the league is also likely to witness experienced striker Rani's return to action after she made her last appearance at the Tokyo Olympic Games last year. She was in rehab to recover from a prolonged hamstring injury. IANS
