Shanghai, Apr 27 (PTI) India's compound mixed pair of Abhishek Verma and Jyothi Surekha Vennam will face Turkey in the bronze medal play-off match at the 'Stage One' of the Archery World Cup here today.
The Indian duo led 117-116 against the Danish pair of Tanja Jensen and Martin Damsbo, who finally prevailed 155-154.
