Indian National Match Poker Team All Set For The Nations Cup Qualifier


The Indian National Match Poker Team will be competing in the Nations Cup Qualifier on Sunday, 13 June. This qualifier is only for teams from the Asian region. Team India had previously secured fourth position in the 2020 Virtual Nations Cup and lifted the winners title in Taiwan at the 2019 Asian Nations Cup.

The Indian team has a captain in Jagdeep Singh. For the season 4 of India’s national league – the MatchIPL, Singh led the team to a smashing victory. Team India has members like Pratibha Arya, Amit Varma, Gaurav Kalra, Ishaan Punjabi, Anujkumar Kodam and Tanmay Bagga. 

Apart from Bagga, all the other players had represented Haryana Hawks under the captaincy of Singh. Bagga, an experienced Match Poker athlete, was a key player during the 2019 Asian Nations Cup.
