While they couldn't bring a gold medal like they did in 2014, it was still a commendable effort from the squash contingent.
...
And with this latest squash medal, India also have their best ever outing in squash at the Asiad, in terms of numbers.

At Incheon in 2014, they finished with four squash medals. Now they have done even better and finished with 5.
...
And squash brings India's 68th medal overall!
...
So, India's number of gold medals stays at 15. And the number of silver medals will remain 24.
...
This was also India's last chance to win a gold medal at the Asian Games 2018.

Sadly they have to be content with just a silver here.
...
The four bronze medals came from men's team event, men's singles (Saurav Ghosal), and women's singles (Dipika Pallikal and Joshna Chinappa)
...
This was India's first silver medal in squash at this Asiad after four bronze medals. So, definitely this is one to cherish.

India has to settle for the silver medal!
...
It's now or never for Joshna!!!!!
...
But Annie Au has established her supremacy in Game 3.

Leading 6-2 now

Joshna also defeated the eight-time world champion Nicol David yesterday in the semi-finals. Irrespective of the fact that David is in the twilight of her career, it was a big win indeed for the Indian.

Joshna should draw confidence from that win.
...
Joshna has loads of experience playing at the highest level of the sport. So, if there is anyone who can fight back, then it is her.
...
Can Joshna fight back?

Needless to say that India is in trouble now!
...
The refereeing isn't going in the Indian's favour.

Au looking to dominate the proceedings thoroughly as she goes up 11-3 in this second rubber.
