The official statement came from CoA who is running the suspended Table Tennis Federation of India. The CoA said,

Diya Chitale, who had approached the Delhi High Court over her exclusion from the women’s CWG squad, has been included in the side for the upcoming Commonwealth Games.

While announcing the inclusion of Diya, CoA also clarified that the rumours among the media members was just the recommendation of selectors and not the final decision of CoA.

In absence of Table Tennis Federation of India, the team selection is done by CoA which is finalised after getting clearance from Sports Authority of India. On Monday, the committee chaired by CoA member S D Mudgil discussed and finalised the team.

Diya Chitale will be paired up with Manika Batra in women’s doubles.
