Miyo plans to send her best players to the cup, and some have previously been in cup finals. Myo said the team studies the Philippines team’s tactics in order to gain skills. She said that if her team can pick up three skills from the Philippines team from the first match, their chances of qualifying for the next round will grow.

Chaba Kaew will play against the Philippines in India tomorrow in the cup opener. The top-five teams plus co-host Australia will represent Asia at the 2023 World Cup. New Zealand will also be hosting some matches. Coach Miyo pointed out that it was important for her team to have a winning start with the cup opener, and said she would send her best players in each game.
