India had four wrestlers in the quarter-finals and would have expected a lot but in the end, Divya Kakran's Bronze was the only medal they had to show for their efforts in the mat on day 3. After a gold apiece on day 1 and day 2, this might not be much but it is all crucial as India look to improve their medal tally in Asian Games 2018. That's the end of the Indian action for today in Wrestling. Join us again tomorrow to see if India can extend their medal tally in wrestling.

17:33 (IST)21 AUG 2018

For the third day in a row, India have a medal in wrestling. It might be BRONZE but it is a medal all the same and Divya finished the match in stunning style.

17:31 (IST)21 AUG 2018

And it is all over in under a minute and a half. Divya Kakran wins BRONZE in the women's freestyle 68kg.

17:31 (IST)21 AUG 2018

And it is Divya who does and goes on the rampage and she is already 6-0 up. It is is less than one minute on the clock.

17:09 (IST)21 AUG 2018

With bronze medal on the line, it is not especially surprising that both wrestlers haven't taken too many risks in the first period. But with the scores still level, one of them might have to.

17:07 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Both wrestlers are fairly cautious and unsurprisingly it is level so far.

17:06 (IST)21 AUG 2018

It has been an even contest so far between India's Divya Kakran and Chinese Taipei's Chen Wenling.

17:04 (IST)21 AUG 2018

And we begin slightly ahead of schedule. The Bronze medal encounter is underway.

15:02 (IST)21 AUG 2018

The action will resume after a break. The medal matches will begin in a few hours. It will be India's Divya Kakran taking on Chinese Taipei's Chen Wenling for Bronze in the women's freestyle 68kg at 6.00 PM IST.

14:27 (IST)21 AUG 2018

So now Divya Kakran remain's only hope of a medal in wrestling on day 3. She will face Chinese Taipei's Chen Wenling in the Bronze medal match in the women's freestyle 68kg category.

14:26 (IST)21 AUG 2018

A shoulder injury means that Manish has stopped midway in his first repechage round, and his opponent from Chinese Taipei advances to the Bronze Medal bout. India's medal hopes in this category are over.

14:23 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Manish looked to have injured his right shoulder and he has that taped. 

14:22 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Manish will now face Chinese Taipei's Yinghua Hung in the repechage round. 

14:21 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Kazakhstan's Almat Kebispayev is through to the final which means Manish will have a shot at the bronze medal in the Greco-Roman 60kg through the repechage round.

14:10 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Uzbekistan's Islomjon Bakhramov loses in the semi-final of the Greco-Roman 60kg and that means Gyanender Dahiya's hopes of a bronze medal have been vanquished.

14:04 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Kyrgyzstan's Medet Kyzy Aiperi is defeated in the semi-final which now means that Kiran's hopes of a bronze medal go along with her. 

14:02 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Mongolia's Tumentsetseg Sharkhuu is through to the final which means that now India's Divya Kakran will face Chinese Taipei's Chen Wenling in the Bronze medal match in the women's freestyle 68kg category.

13:48 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Now all four Indian wrestlers have lost in the quarter-finals today and will have to wait and see if they can pick up a bronze medal through the repechage round.

13:47 (IST)21 AUG 2018

It looks like Manish has injured himself as well and even if Almat progresses through to the final it looks unlikely that he will take any further part in the competition.

13:46 (IST)21 AUG 2018

And it is all over. Kazakhstan's Almat Kebispayev beats Manish 8-0 on technical superiority and advances through to the semi-final.

13:45 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Manish is trying to be aggressive but Almat goes on a roll and is up 8-0 after just 63 seconds.

13:43 (IST)21 AUG 2018

It will be India vs Kazakhstan for a spot in the semi-final of the Greco-Roman 67 kg.

13:35 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Next up, India's Manish will take on Kazakhstan's Almat Kebispayev in the quarter-final of the Greco-Roman 67kg

13:35 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Uzbekistan beat India 5-0 and Gyanender's hopes of a gold medal goes. However, he can still claim a bronze medal through the repechage if Islomjon reaches the final.

13:34 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Islomjon decides that being defensive is the way forward. With under a minute to go that has paid off so far.

13:33 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Gyanender's birthday is a couple of days away but if he doesn't do something drastic in the next two minutes, his hopes of a gold medal will vanish.

13:31 (IST)21 AUG 2018

At the end of the first period, Uzbekistan lead India 5-0.

13:30 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Under 30 seconds left in the first period and try as he might Gyanender still doesn't have a point.

13:29 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Gyanender is rolled twice in quick succession and Islomjon races to a 5-0 lead with just 90 seconds on the clock.

13:29 (IST)21 AUG 2018

And Uzbekistan picks up a couple points.

13:28 (IST)21 AUG 2018

And we are underway and both wrestlers are immediately to look to get on the board.

13:25 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Next up will be the quarter-final of the Greco-Roman 60kg between India's Gyanender Dahiya and Uzbekistan's Islomjon Bakhramov

13:13 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Now both Kiran and Divya have to hope that their opponents go through to the final if they are to have any chance of a bronze through the repechage round.

13:12 (IST)21 AUG 2018

And it is all over. Too little too late and Kyrgyzstan's Medet Kyzy Aiperi beats India's Kiran.

13:11 (IST)21 AUG 2018

But Aiperi picks up a point and the lead is now two with under 45 seconds left.

13:11 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Kiran finally gets off the mark and the deficit is down to one with 53 seconds left.

13:09 (IST)21 AUG 2018

A minute gone in the second period and Kiran is yet to open her account and time is ticking for India.

13:07 (IST)21 AUG 2018

At the end of the first period, Aiperi leads Kiran 3-0.

13:06 (IST)21 AUG 2018

We are back underway after some medical attention is needed for Aiperi for the second time in as many minutes.

13:06 (IST)21 AUG 2018

The lead is up to three points and that is not good news for India or Kiran with just under a minute to go in the first period.

13:04 (IST)21 AUG 2018

The teenager Aiperi gets off the mark but there is a small delay as some medical attention is needed for the teenage grappler who leads 1-0.

13:02 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Cautious start from both wrestlers and neither are looking for an attacking move at the outset.

13:01 (IST)21 AUG 2018

And we are underway as India take on Kyrgyzstan for a place in the semi-final.

12:59 (IST)21 AUG 2018

But the next encounter will be between India's Kiran who will take on Kyrgyzstan's Medet Kyzy Aiperi in the quarter-final of the Women's Freestyle 76kg

12:58 (IST)21 AUG 2018

It is all over. Mongolia beat India 11-1 and advance to the semi-final of the 68kg category.

12:46 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Divya Kakran finally gets on the board but the deficit is still 7 with less than 20 seconds to go.

12:45 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Mongolia lead 5-0 with just over a minute to go and this looks like it is over.

12:43 (IST)21 AUG 2018

Aggressive start from Divya to start the second period but she still doesn't have a point.
