Asian Games 2018: India Schedule Today, Match List for August 30
The Indian eves are in the final of the hockey competition at the 2018 Asian Games after victory over the Chinese yesterday. The men will look to do likewise on Thursday as they take on Malaysia in their final four clash as they attempt to defend their gold medal from four years ago.
We are almost at the end of these games and the track and field events conclude today. The relays are always a great way to bring the curtains down on the athletics front and India's men's and women's team are involved in the finals of their respective 4x400m events.
That's not all, Seema Punia and Sandeep Kumari will take part in the women's discus throw final. Seema is looking to defend her gold from the 2014 edition. Both 1500m finals will be of much interest; on the men's side, Manjit Singh and Jinson Johnson will attempt to repeat their gold-silver finish from the 800m while Chitra Unnikrishnan and Monika Chaudhary go in the women's final.
Manika Batra and Sharath Kamal teamed up together to win bronze in the mixed doubles in table tennis on Wednesday and today they kick-start their singles campaigns along with Mouma Das and Sathiyan Gnansekaran.
The Indian women's squash team plays Hong Kong in Pool B action.
There's Indian action in the lake as there are three kayak finals and one canoe final. Indian riders also feature in the equestrian in the Individual Jumping event final.
