Dipa Karmakar is nursing an injury and has not been picked for the upcoming World Gymnastics Championships which is also for qualifying for 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
On Saturday, Dipa scored an average of 14.316 on her two vaults. She was 0.412 adrift off the gold-medallist Rebecca Andrade, who finished with 14.728.
But B Aruna Reddy, who had won a bronze medal in the women's individual vault event at the Melbourne World Cup, hurt her knee during the first vault and was ruled out of the competition.
The four-member Indian team, which also comprises B Aruna Reddy, Ashish Kumar and Rakesh Patra, will look to make it count with good performances.
Patra claimed that India's long-serving chief coach G S Bawa didn't have any clue about the selection criteria and it was only announced after a group of gymnasts had already performed their events at the I G Stadium on Saturday.
It was her first event after undergoing an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgery in Mumbai, last year in July.
The 24-year-old from Tripura, who had finished fourth in vault event in the 2016 Rio Olympics, scored 14.150 to win gold today. She had topped the qualification also with a score of 13.400.
