Day 5 was a mixed bag for the Indian contingent at the Asian Games. India could secure only three medals on Thursday, as against eight on Wednesday. Nevertheless, there were bright spots like the trio of Sarabjot Singh, Arjun Singh Cheema and Shiva Narwal winning gold in the 10m air pistol team event. On Friday, September 29, India will look to revive the medal rush, with the tennis men's doubles duo of Ramkumar Ramanathan and Saketh Myneni contesting the gold medal match against the Chinese Taipei pair of Jason Jung and Yu Hsiou Hsu. Meanwhile, the pair of Rohan Bopanna and Rutuja Bhosale will vie for a spot in the mixed doubles final. (Medal Tally | Schedule | Streaming | Full Coverage | More Sports News)
There will be several other important events with Indian representation. The shooting squad will target more medals, with the men’s 50m rifle 3 positions and women’s 10m air pistol competitions slated on Friday. Two-time world champion Nikhat Zareen will set her sights on a podium finish at the Asiad as she takes the ring for the women’s 50kg semi-finals. The country's track and field athletes will also be in action for the first time on Friday.
