India defeated New Zealand twice and played out two high-octane matches against Australia in the competition. The side will be looking to sharpen their skills in the training and conditioning camp and produce even better results this year.

"The women's team tasted success down under in the 3 Nations tournament last December and will be hungry for more. We noted down the aspects we need to work on during the 3 Nations tournament and we will ensure that the players show a huge improvement in the national coaching camp," said David John, Director High Performance.
