Sania Mirza will lead India's campaign in the Fed Cup women's team tennis competition to be played in Seoul, Korea, next month.

Shikha Uberoi, Ankita Bhambri and Isha Lakhani are the other members of the team that will be captained by Enrico Piperno, All India Tennis Association said in a release on Monday.

Hosts Korea, Australia, Chinese Taipei, New Zealand, Philippines and Uzbekistan are the other teams in the fray in the Asia-Oceania Group 1 zonal qualification tie.

Sania was included in the team but did not play a match as she recovered from an ankle injury last year when the competition was held in Delhi.
