On the 10th day of the Asian Games, the men's cricket team will finally be in action in Hangzhou in the quarter-final against Nepal. Ruturaj Gaikwad will be leading for the national side for the first time in history and if India wins Gold medal, he might be there in the selectors' mind as a captaincy option in the future, not just for India but in the IPL as well. Talking of IPL, the second-string side is filled with stars of the 2023 edition of the cash-rich league and it will be interesting to see how all of them perform while coming together.
Nepal can't be taken lightly as they bossed the preliminary stage with big wins over Mongolia and the Maldives. Even if second-string, the Indian team will still start as favourites but if there was one opportunity for Nepal to challenge India in cricket, it is this. The winner of the quarter-final plays the semis on Thursday, October 5.
