Recently, the teams’ inclusion in the coveted continental competition was in doubt since, according to internal rules set forth by the Sports Ministry, they needed to place among the top eight in Asia to receive approval. However, neither the men’s squad nor the women’s team fulfill this requirement, hence India’s involvement in the Hangzhou competition was in doubt. But on Wednesday, the ministry declared that it was making an exception due to the team’s outstanding performance lately, when India won the SAFF Championship after winning the Intercontinental Cup.
