For the past few years, the Indian cricket team has been seen playing at two venues simultaneously. While the main Indian team went to England to play the final of the World Test Championship during the Covid era, the other team led by Shikhar Dhawan was playing in Sri Lanka. Even after that, the Indian team had such a time. Now the month of September will once again see the Indian team playing at two venues in a similar manner. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to send the Indian men’s and women’s teams to the Asian Games in China.
The Asian Games will be held in Hangzhou, China from September 20 to October 8. T20 matches of men’s and women’s cricket will be played in this tournament. Initially, the BCCI refused to send a men’s team. However, now BCCI has taken a positive stand in this regard and the Indian men’s team will also be seen playing in this tournament.
During the period in which this tournament will be held, the Indian team will be playing an ODI series against Australia. In addition, the ODI World Cup warm-up matches will be held at the same time. The ODI World Cup, which is being held in India, will start from October 5.
As the Indian cricket team’s key batsmen are in the squad for the World Cup, India’s young players can be seen in this tournament. Many players who have shone in the IPL can get a chance here. The Indian men’s cricket team participated in the 1998 Kuala Lumpur Commonwealth Games. At that time, a team led by Sachin Tendulkar was playing in Toronto and the Indian team led by Ajay Jadeja was playing in the Commonwealth Games. However, India failed to win a medal in this tournament.
