The squad was announced by the Table Tennis Federation of India (TTFI).

Meanwhile, Gnanasekaran Sathiyan, a member of the gold medal-winning men's teams at the 2018 and 2022 Commonwealth Games, failed to make the main squad but has been picked as a reserve player.

All six players for the team were selected based on world rankings.

They will be called upon in case of any injuries.

Paris will mark the first time that India will be represented in the team table tennis events at the Olympics.

Both the men's and women's team events were introduced into the Olympic program from Beijing 2008.

The Indian men's and women's table tennis teams have been awarded quotas for Paris 2024 based on their respective rankings in March.

With the team quota, the country has secured two quotas each in the men's and women's singles tournaments.

In singles, Sharath Kamal and Harmeet Desai will compete in the men's category, while Manika Batra and Sreeja Akula will feature in the women's event.

Former TT player Massimo Costantini from Italy was also present as a special invitee to the selections. Costantini will take charge as coach of the Indian table tennis team next month.
