In the 2023 Asian Games, in addition to the women’s teams, the men’s teams will also play cricket matches. To this end, the captaincy of the Indian men’s team has been handed over to Rituraj Gaikwad. Now a great news about the calendar has arrived. According to a report, the Indian men’s team, captained by Gaikwad, earned a place in the quarterfinals directly on the basis of the ICC T20 ranking. The India team will play the quarterfinal match on October 5. While for the women’s teams, the matches will begin on September 19.
According to PTI, if we talk about the Indian men’s cricket team, if they win in the quarterfinals, they will play the semifinals on October 6. After this, the final match will be played on October 7. This match will be for the gold medal. The important thing is that along with the Asian Games, the Cricket World Cup will also be organized. Therefore, only the B teams of Afghanistan and Bangladesh will participate in this tournament along with India. In such a situation, victory for India may be easier. However, no official information regarding the Team India schedule has been revealed yet.
14 teams will play women’s cricket at the Asian Games. While 18 teams will participate in men’s cricket. Women’s cricket will start from September 19. And on September 26, the match for the gold and bronze medals will be played. Men’s cricket will start from September 28. Its final will be played on October 7.
