Nevertheless, this has been a historic result for India.

The country has never won anything better than a bronze medal until this Asian Games. India had eight bronze medals until this edition.

Now they add one silver through Sindhu and another bronze through Saina!

12:58 (IST)28 AUG 2018

Sindhu has to settle for the silver yet again.

That is unfortunate! However, she got very little opportunity against a player, who simply weaves magic on the court. Give her the shuttle and she will find openings on the court that you could never even think of! 

That's how good Tai is on the court!

With a flick of the wrist, she gets a delicate drop and Tai gets the gold!!!!!
