Russia is the lowest rated team in the qualifiers amongst the men. We beat them 10-0 earlier in the year so can't see us messing this up over 2 legs at home.

USA is the 2nd lowest team from pot 3 so can't complain too much about our luck with the draw.

Pak men got Netherlands so they will fail to qualify again.

Yes, a favorable draw for men ... Also, hoping qualification for our women, despite a tricky opponent USA.

Our men and women teams will play back-to-back matches against Russia and USA teams respectively in Bhubaneswar on November 1 and 2 to make it to the Tokyo Olympic.

This should be relatively easy for the Indian men. The women should also be favored at home although the matches could be quite close.
