Rani Rampal: Indian Women hockey team:
Earlier this year, Rani Rampal made a successful comeback to the Indian hockey team during the tour of South Africa, where she was selected as one of the 22 players in the squad.
Prior to this, she had last played for India in the FIH Women’s Hockey Pro League 2021-22 against Belgium, where she earned her 250th cap.
