Dushyant also bagged a Bronze medal for India in Rowing -- Men's Lightweight Single Sculls. Another Bronze came as Rohit Kumar and Bhagwan Singh finished third in the Final of Men's Lightweight Double Sculls. India’s Shooting sensation Heena Sidhu finished third in Women's 10m Air Pistol to bag Bronze!

India’s Tennis Men's Doubles pair of Rohan Bopanna and Divij Sharan grabbed the GOLD medal after defeating Kazakhstan's Alexander Bublik & Denis Yevseyev 6-3, 6-4 in the Final. Meanwhile, Prajnesh Gunneswaran's loss in the Men's Singles Semis meant that the ace Indian player would have to settle for a Bronze medal. There was another huge upset in Kabaddi as the Indian Women's team lost to Iran in the final, and bagged the silver medal. However, 3 medals were also confirmed in squash as

With these medals India’s tally stands at 25, which now includes 6 GOLDS, 5 SILVERS, and 14 BRONZE.

Squash action continues on Day 7. There have been no medals for India on the Day. 

Indian Squash players have been impressive so far. Dipika Pallikal Karthik got a bye in the Round of 32 and faced local hope Yeni Siti Rohmah in the Round of 16. An easy 11-6, 11-5, and 11-5 win against the Indonesian was followed up by Dipika with another straight set win against Misaki Kobayashi of Japan in the quarters.

Dipika Pallikal Karthik's match against Malaysia's Nicol David promises to be a cracker. There is even a possibility of an ALL-INDIAN clash if Dipika and Joshna both win their semifinal matches. If Dipika loses, she would have to settle for a Bronze medal, making it the first medal for India on the day. However, she would definitely give it her all on the court today to ensure she can fight for a gold in the final.
