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.
