Asian Games 2023 Cricket Gold Medal Match Equation: This time the Asian Games 2023 is being organized in Hangzhou, China. These prestigious games will take place between September 23 and September 8. This time, for the first time in the Asian Games, the Indian men’s and women’s cricket teams will make their debut in the Asian Games. This means that both the teams will play in the Asian Games for the first time and will be strong contenders to win the gold medal.
India’s men’s team will be led by Rituraj Gaikwad, while the women’s team will be captained by Harmanpreet Kaur. Cricket will be played in T20 format in Asiad. All matches of the women’s and men’s teams will be held at the Pingfeng Cricket Field of Zhejiang University of Technology in Hangzhou.
Now let us tell you how both our teams can win the gold medal. Actually, both the Indian men’s and women’s teams have got direct entries in the Asia Cup. In such a situation, the journey of Team India will start directly from the quarter finals. After winning the quarter-finals, Team India would have won the semi-finals and then the final match. That means Team India will get the gold medal if it wins three matches in total.
