Rituraj and the team are fully prepared for the Asian Games 2023. Ruturaj Gaikwad said that it would be a matter of pride to win a medal while representing the country. For this we will play good cricket. For the Asian Games, the BCCI has handed over the command of the team to Rituraj Gaikwad. Rituraj is also well prepared to fulfill the responsibility. BCCI released a video of him on Saturday. In which he expressed his feelings after being elected captain. In the video, he is saying that since childhood, he had seen on TV how an athlete would stand on the podium after winning a medal. He said that this moment will be special not only for me but for every player who is a part of the squad.

Now being a part of these games together will be a lot of fun too.” They said that “We will definitely win medals. Representing the country in sports like the Asian Games and winning medals, we have always seen on TV. How an athlete stands on the podium after winning a medal. Seeing myself being a part of it and going out there and winning a medal is a very special thing for me. Indian fans have always supported, be it in any series or match. But this game is special. We will play good cricket. Bringing home the gold, standing on the podium and singing the country’s national anthem would be a dream come true.”
