TEHRAN – Behrouz Ataei has named his 17-man squad for the 2022 Asian Games but Iran captain Milad Ebadipour has been left out of the team.
He has not been invited following his poor performance in the 2023 Asian Volleyball Championship, where Team Melli finished in second place after losing to Japan 3-0 in the final match last week.
Defending and consecutive two-time champions Iran are in Pool B with Nepal and Bahrain in the Asian Games.
