Former India cricketer Anjum Chopra is seemingly stunned with the women’s team selection for the Asian Games 2023. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently named a 15-member squad for the tournament scheduled to take place from September 19, at Hangzhou, in China.

Anjum Chopra shares her thoughts on the matter

The former India captain recently drew comparison of the Asian games squad with the one that recently played the T20I series in Bangladesh and questioned why some players have been left out despite not getting a chance.

“The recent team announcement for the Asian Games later this year is perplexing. About 6 changes from the T20I squad that is sent to Bangladesh. Some without playing have been exchanged and why the others remain a question mark. They couldn’t have been injured,” Chopra wrote in her column for IANS.

Harmanpreet Kaur is set to lead the team with Smriti Mandhana acting as her deputy. Talented speedster Titas Sadhu who showcased great performance at the inaugural U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa has been rewarded. On the other hand, spinner Minnu Mani who picked up five wickets in the T20I series against Bangladesh has also retained her place.

Wicketkeeper Richa Ghosh is also back in the team while Yastika Bhatia has been dropped. The exclusion of the seamer Renuka Singh Thakur was a shocker as she had finished as the highest wicket-taker at the Commonwealth Games 2022 with 11 wickets in five matches.

The women’s category in Asian games will feature 14 matches, with 14 teams going against each other. All the matches of the cricket event will be played at the Zhejiang University of Technology Pingfeng Cricket Field.
