India is the current champion, having won its first title after beating title holders Indonesia 3-0 in the 2022 edition.

The former Pacific zone was converted into Asian and Australasian zones for the 1954–1955 tournament.

Beginning with the second tournament in 1951–1952, zone winners contested to determine a challenger for the reigning champion.

Its successful effort to regain the cup in 1969–1970 was a struggle, but in the competitions ending in 1973, 1976, and 1979, Indonesia swept its ties by winning a remarkable 51 of 54 individual matches.
