The AITA today agreed to field Rohan Bopanna and Divij Sharan as a team at the Asian Games on request of the two players which means that veteran Leander Paes will team up with young Sumit Nagal.
Bopanna and Sharan had requested AITA and the Sports Ministry to pair them.
The AITA at its Executive Meeting (EC) discussed the matter and accepted Bopanna and Sharan's request.
"Yes, the EC has decided that Rohan and Divij will play as a team," a source told PTI.
Since Ramkumar Ramanathan and Prajnesh Gunneswaran will focus on singles, the third singles player left in the squad is Nagal.
Paes and Nagal will be fielded as India's second team at the Asian Games, scheduled to begin in Indonesia from August 18.
