India Men’s, Women’s Cricket Team squad, Captains for Asian Games 2023

Asian Games 2023 : The India Cricket Team has recently announced its squad for the Asian Games 2023, marking their return to the competition after Cricket was excluded from the event in 2018. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has made a historic decision to allow the Indian Cricket Team to participate in the Asian Games, and they have now revealed the squads for both the men’s and women’s teams.

The men’s team will be led by Ruturaj Gaikwad, who will captain the side for the first time. This is an exciting opportunity for Gaikwad, who has previously captained domestic teams such as Puneri Bappa in the Maharashtra Premier League. The 15-man squad includes several new faces, with players like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rinku Singh, and Jitesh Sharma being given the chance to represent their country. It’s important to note that this is a second-string squad, as the main focus of the Indian Cricket Team will be on the ICC World Cup 2023.
