It was a forgettable day for India in Shooting. After plenty of medals in the first six days, India ended day seven without a medal. In the Men's 25m Rapid Fire Pistol, India's Shivam Shukla and Anish Bhanwala did not even qualify for the final. 

In the Men's and Women's Skeet Qualification, India had a mixed bag. While the two men shot well, they are joint-ninth while the two women shooters are joint-eighth despite shooting just 68/75. In the last two shooting events of the Asian Games tomorrow, India will be hoping for a change of fortunes. Join us again on Sunday for day 8 to see if India can end with a medal or two. Until then, goodbye.

India have been enjoying a very good run at shooting at the Asian Games 2018. At no other sport have India won more medals. Of the 25 medals won by India, more than one-third have come in shooting and in no other sport have they won more medals.

So far, Saurabh Chaudhary and Rahi Sarnobat have won GOLD. There have also been four Silver and two Bronze medals. While there has been plenty of reasons for India to celebrate not everything has gone according to plan for India.

On the back of her impressive performances in the Commonwealth Games earlier this year, Manu Bhaker was expected to pick up at least a medal or two but she didn't. Heena Sidhu was on course for at least Silver on day 6 but even she crumbled under pressure and it will be interesting to see if India have finish shooting the way they started it at these Games.

On day seven, India will be looking to secure a medal or two thanks to Shivam Shukla and Anish in the Men's 25m Rapid Fire Pistol and also progress through to the final of the Men's and Women's Skeet as well.
