NEW DELHI: Sunitha Rao will spearhead the Indian team in the Fed Cup Asia-Oceania group `I' women's tennis competition at Christchurch, New Zealand, from April 18 to 21.

With Sania Mirza out with a knee injury, Shikha Uberoi, Ankita Bhambri and Tara Iyer will form the rest of the team.

"Looking at the draw and the team that we have, I am sure we will have a good Fed Cup. Chinese Taipei looks a tough team,'' said the captain of the Indian team, Enrico Piperno.

Piperno said that she may not be very high on confidence at the moment, but would definitely strengthen the team. Special Correspondent
