Until then, it's a goodbye from us!
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.
Final result
Final score: Hong Kong def India 2-0 to win the women's team gold!
Alas! Joshna can't inflict any more damage!

Annie Au wraps this up at 11-6!

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?

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

The second game too goes to Annie Au 9-11
Joshna is now trying to keep it competitive in this second game....determined to not let her opponent build a big lead.

Joshna hasn't been able to put her best version in this match....very, very error-prone while Au is keeping it squeaky clean.

Au looking to dominate the proceedings thoroughly as she goes up 11-3 in this second rubber.
Annie Au has a slight edge over the Indian as she leads 8-6 in the head-to-head encounters
Au is World No. 11 while Chinappa is No. 16
The next match too is a tough one for India as Joshna Chinappa faces Annie Au.

The Women's squash team have a chance at creating history! If they win their match against Hong Kong in the final, then it will be the 16th gold medal for India at this Asiad, another Asian Games Record for them (as the earlier best was 15 golds in 1951). India have already surpassed the medal haul of 65 medals and are now at 67 medals!
Hello and Welcome to Sportskeeda's LIVE coverage of the 2018 Asian Games Jakarta-Palembang!

The final day of the 2018 Asian games has arrived. Time has flown by and it has been a roller-coaster ride for India as they recorded their best-ever medal haul at the Asiad. 

Athletics proved to be the pleasant surprise as Indians went on to bag the maximum number of medals from their tally (19, including 7 golds, 10 silvers, and 2 bronze) in it. 

There were also few unexpected medals which came from Kurash, Rowing, Wushu, and Sepaktakraw. While there were also a few gold medals which India would have felt assured of bagging (kabaddi and hockey) that could not be won. However, this is the beauty of sports as anything can happen on the biggest stage of a multi-sporting extravaganza and the team which is better on the day, wins the laurels. 

In all, the Asiad has been truly satisfying and the Indians will be hoping to end their excellent campaign on a high by adding a few more medals to their kitty. 

The last day started on a Brilliant note as Amit Panghal defeated Uzbek boxer Hasanboy Dusmatov, who is also an Olympic Champion, in the Final of Men's Light Flyweight (49kg) to bag the elusive GOLD medal. 

Another gold medal came India's way as Pranab Bardhan & Shibnath Dey Sarkar won the GOLD in Bridge Men's Pair!
