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.
...
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.
...
And it is all over in under a minute and a half. Divya Kakran wins BRONZE in the women's freestyle 68kg.
...
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.
...
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.
...
Both wrestlers are fairly cautious and unsurprisingly it is level so far.
...
It has been an even contest so far between India's Divya Kakran and Chinese Taipei's Chen Wenling.
...
And we begin slightly ahead of schedule. The Bronze medal encounter is underway.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
Manish looked to have injured his right shoulder and he has that taped. 
...
Manish will now face Chinese Taipei's Yinghua Hung in the repechage round. 
...
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.
...
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.
...
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. 
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
And it is all over. Kazakhstan's Almat Kebispayev beats Manish 8-0 on technical superiority and advances through to the semi-final.
...
Manish is trying to be aggressive but Almat goes on a roll and is up 8-0 after just 63 seconds.
...
It will be India vs Kazakhstan for a spot in the semi-final of the Greco-Roman 67 kg.
...
Next up, India's Manish will take on Kazakhstan's Almat Kebispayev in the quarter-final of the Greco-Roman 67kg
...
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.
...
Islomjon decides that being defensive is the way forward. With under a minute to go that has paid off so far.
