After Defeating Afghanistan in Asian Games 2023, Team India Won Gold Medal

At the Asian Games for the first time, the men’s cricket team of India bagged the gold medal after the final against Afghanistan got abandoned due to rain at the Zhejiang University of Technology Cricket Field in Hangzhou. Team India were awarded the gold medal by virtue of having a higher seeding in the Asian Games 2023 on October 7, Saturday, after the weather had a final say on the cricket program in China.
After winning the gold medal from the Indian women’s cricket team at the Asian Games 2023 a few days ago, the Men in Blue have walked into their footsteps with an unbeaten campaign at the knockout stage. It is to be noted that this was the first time India had sent their cricket teams to the Asiad since the sport was introduced to the multi-sporting continental event in 2010 in Guangzhou.
For the untold, the captain of team India, Ruturaj Gaikwad, won the toss and decided to bowl first. Indian bowlers took three quick wickets in the powerplay, including a controversial one by Mohammad Shahzad, to put the opposition on the backfoot.
