In the day’s second game, India will be up against Chinese Taipei at 12:30 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).
India won the continental championship seven times in eight editions. Iran won it in the 2003 edition held in Kangar, Malaysia.
The four-day event marks the return of the Asian championship after a gap of six years. The previous iteration was held in Gorgan, Iran, in 2017 when India came out as eventual champions beating Pakistan 32-26 in the final.
The tournament will be played in a single-legged round-robin format with the top two teams meeting in the final on June 30.
