For the Commonwealth Games, scheduled to be held in Brisbane, Australia on April 4, there are nine men's and eight women's events scheduled in the three disciplines of Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun.
This year, the Organizing Committee of Commonwealth Games has reduced the country quotas across sports and 15 men and 12 women could be fielded by India as a result in the shooting disciplines, down from 30 previously.
The NRAI also finalised the senior and junior National shooting squads for 2018 as well as for the six International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup stages for the year.
The juniors who have made it to the Commonwealth Games squad have not been selected for the Junior World Cups in view of the importance attached to the Commonwealth Games.
The teams are as follows:
Men: Sanjeev Rajput, Chain Singh, Gagan Narang, Ravi Kumar, Deepak Kumar, Anish Bhanwala, Neeraj Kumar, Jitu Rai, Om Prakash Mitharwal, Manavjit Singh Sandhu, Kynan Chenai, Mohd. Asab, Ankur Mittal, Smit Singh and Sheeraz Sheikh.
Women: Anjum Moudgil, Tejaswini Sawant, Apurvi Chandela, Mehuli Ghosh, Heena Sidhu, Annuraj Singh, Manu Bhaker, Shreyasi Singh, Seema Tomar, Varsha Varman, Saniya Sheikh and Maheshwari Chauhan.
