For the men’s tournament, a nation must sent their U-23 team according to Asian Games regulations. However, there is an exemption that allows three players older than 23 to join the team. It was generally anticipated that Chhetri would captain the Indian squad in the Asian Games, traveling to Hangzhou with Jhinghan and goalkeeper Gurpreet. However, according to a report in the Times of India, the names of the three are absent from the roster provided to the organizers.

Due to the Covid crisis, the Asian games 2023 will be held in China a year after they initially scheduled.
