The Asian Games will be held in China’s Hangzhou city from September 23 to October 8.
Cricket will once again be part of the Asian Games in Hangzhou, China this year, and the Indian Cricket Control Committee (BCCI) may send both men’s and women’s teams to represent India in the long-term match. There were multiple reports. A long-awaited event.
This multisport event will be held in Hangzhou, China from September 23rd to October 8th. It was also learned that the sport will be held in the T20 format at the Asian Games.
In addition, the men’s team is also expected to be a B team as older players will be competing in the ODI World Cup hosted by India from 5 October to 23 November. The report also said that BCCI will refer relevant officials to the Indian Olympic Association by June 30.
BCCI will send an Indian men’s and women’s cricket team to the upcoming 2022 Asian Games, according to a report published by the Indian Express. It is also worth noting that
cricket became part of the Asian Games in both his 2010 and 2014 years. However, BCCI had not established a team at the time. Moreover, the sport, which was banned from the Games in 2018, is finally making a comeback in Hangzhou. Furthermore, the Asian Games were scheduled to be held in 2022, but have been postponed due to China’s zero-corona policy.
In previous Asian Games, the BCCI has cited prearranged schedules as a reason not to send teams to the Games, and India’s Asian Games delegation head Bhupender Bajwa made a similarly suggestive statement.
“All sports but one have entries. Cricket (team) is not available. They say they are busy. We have sent them 3 or 4 e-mails but When they had to send registrations to the organizers, they said, “They won’t be attending,” Bhupender Bajwa was quoted by Indian Express as saying.
The report also points out that it is still not very clear whether the BCCI will send a women’s team to the Asian Games. But it may be interesting to see the final verdict.
