Shikhar Dhawan, the experienced Indian cricketer, will likely lead the Indian cricket team at the Asian Games 2023. VVS Laxman, a well-known figure, is expected to be the coach, per sources from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Despite the event coinciding with the Asia Cup and the World Cup, the BCCI has decided to send both the men’s and women’s teams to China, showcasing their commitment to international competitions.

ANI quoted insider sources from the BCCI confirming that Shikhar Dhawan is being considered for the captaincy position at the Asian Games 2023 while reminiscing about his previous stint as the stand-in captain during Rohit Sharma’s absence. Known affectionately as Gabbar Singh, Dhawan admirably fulfilled his leadership responsibilities, showcasing his ability to guide the team during challenging times.

As news of the Indian cricket team’s potential leadership spread, cricket enthusiasts took to social media to express their opinions. One Twitter user commended the decision, acknowledging the opportunity it presents to identify backup players for the World Cup squad.

They also highlighted the chance for aspiring cricketers to make their case for inclusion in the final squad of 15–16 players. However, concerns were raised regarding the tournament timing, questioning the wisdom of participating in a competition of this magnitude just before the World Cup without the presence of the head coach and captain.

Another fan tweeted supporting Shikhar Dhawan, stating that he deserves the opening spot in the upcoming World Cup due to his consistent performances in major tournaments. Dhawan has repeatedly proven his mettle on the grandest stages, making a strong case for his inclusion in the team’s starting lineup.

China is set to host the Asian Games for the third time in 2023. Beijing, the capital city, previously hosted the Games in 1990, while Guangzhou, another prominent Chinese city, had the privilege of hosting the prestigious event in 2010. The upcoming edition promises to be a memorable celebration of sportsmanship and talent.

The BCCI Apex Council Meeting, scheduled for July 7, is set to deliberate on India’s participation in the Asian Games 2023. Despite reservations, the BCCI has committed to sending the men’s and women’s teams to Hangzhou, China.

However, a scheduling conflict has emerged due to the simultaneous occurrence of the quadrennial Asian Games, the Asia Cup 2023, and the highly anticipated World Cup 2023, all taking place within a relatively short timeframe. Consequently, it seems unlikely that prominent World Cup stars will be able to participate in the Asian Games.

Suppose the BCCI opts to field a younger side for the Asian Games. In that case, two potential candidates for captaincy are Ruturaj Gaikwad and Yashasvi Jaiswal. These promising talents could lead the team if they fail to secure a spot in the World Cup squad.

According to the Sources, the majority of the team is anticipated to consist of players under the age of 23, including those who have demonstrated their abilities in the widely followed Indian Premier League (IPL).
