Good evening, everyone! Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Asian Wrestling Championships.

Today, India's Navjot Kaur will be taking on Japan's Imai Miyu in the final of women's 65 Kg. Up until now, Vinesh Phogat's silver medal win was India's best performance at the Asian Championships. However, Navjot now has the opportunity to better it by bagging the gold.

The 2014 Commonwealth Games bronze-medallist, though, will face a tough challenge in the final. After all, she lost the Japanese wrestler in the first round-robin match earlier in the day in a tight encounter. However, she overcame the loss by winning two consecutive bouts to make it to the final.

Revenge will be on her mind when she gets down to business here in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Stay tuned for all live updates.
