The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed its participation in the upcoming Hangzhou Asian Games later this year, sending both the Indian men’s and women’s cricket teams to represent the country. The composition of these teams for the 19th Asian Games, scheduled to take place in Hangzhou, China, will be announced after the BCCI’s forthcoming Apex Council meeting on July 7, as per reports.

Due to the overlapping schedule of the men’s competition with India’s World Cup preparations, it is anticipated that a second-string side will represent the country in the continental event. The Asian Games are slated to be held in Hangzhou from September to October. Meanwhile, the ICC World Cup will take place from October 5 to November 23. The BCCI is expected to finalize the player roster and submit it to the Indian Olympic Association before June 30.

Amidst the speculations surrounding team leadership, it is believed that Shikhar Dhawan, with his experience and leadership skills, might lead the India B team in the Asian Games. His presence would lend strength and guidance to the squad in this highly anticipated quadrennial extravaganza. On the other hand, the women’s team will participate with their full-strength lineup and is regarded as the frontrunner for securing the gold medal. Harmanpreet Kaur currently serves as the captain of the women’s team.

It is worth noting that cricket was last featured in the Asian Games during the 2014 edition held in Incheon. However, the Indian teams did not participate. This year’s Hangzhou Asian Games will mark a significant return for Indian cricket to the prestigious multi-sport event.
