Asian Games 2018: India Schedule Today, Match List for August 28
An excellent beginning to week two of the 2018 Asian Games for Team India on Monday with track and field providing some fantastic results and the boxers doing well. PV Sindhu made history, becoming the first Indian to make the singles final in badminton in Asian Games history.
Tuesday is a big day with a couple of big gold medal matches in store for India.
First up, at the archery range, it's India versus Korea in both the men's and women's team finals of the Compound event. The Indian men are the defending champions after that amazing win four years ago against the mighty Koreans. It's a rematch in 2018.
The women's team has gone one better this time after a bronze medal at the last edition. They have a daunting task ahead of them in the face of the Korean women.
Sindhu beat Japan's Akane Yamaguchi in the semifinals on Monday and on Tuesday it is the big final as she faces off against Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei for the gold medal. Tai enjoys a 9-3 head-to-head record against the Indian. Sindhu has, in fact, lost her last five meetings against Tai, her last win coming in the 2016 Rio Olympics. Can she get over her final hoodoo? Can she get the better of someone who's had her number on so many occasions?
In athletics, Hima Das and Dutee Chand, who've both already picked up individual silvers in the women's 400m and 100m respectively, go again in the Heats of the 200m as they look to qualify for the semis.
There is also the 800m final where Jinson Johnson and Manjit Singh are involved as well as the Mixed Team 4x400m relay final.
Another India-Korea clash in the semifinals of the men's team event.
Indian interest continues in boxing, squash as well as sailing.
