The Indian women's hockey team, winless after two matches, will be looking to lift its performance against Rio 2016 champions Great Britain. India lost 2-0 against Germany in a well contested match and Rani's team will take away a lot of positives from that game especially after the 5-1 drubbing they got from world champions, the Netherlands in its opening pool match.

Rio 2016 silver medallist must win against Ngan Yi Cheung of Hong Kong. A defeat could ruin her chances of topping her group and making the knockout rounds where she is expected to meet the strong Japanese players. B. Sai Praneeth will also be playing his group match but the Indian shuttler will have no chance to progress even he wins against Dutchman Mark Caljouw.

The archers, like the shooters so far, have drawn a blank so far in the team events. Deepika Kumari and Tarundeep Rai will bank on their experience in the individual elimination rounds on Wednesday. It's been quite windy in Tokyo and Deepika is known to falter in such conditions. The world No. 1 has won everything except an Olympic medal. This is her third Olympics.

Boxer Pooja Rani will hope to enter the quarterfinals in the 75 kg category. If she wins against Ichrak Chaib of Algeria, Pooja will be the third Indian boxer to advance after Mary Kom and Lovlina Borgohain.

8:08 AM IST: Archery - Men's Singles, 1/16 Elimination
Tarundeep Rai loses to Itay Shanny of Isreal in shoot-out, 6-5 (24-28, 27-26, 27-27, 28-27, 27-28, 9-10)
