PV Sindhu will hope to repeat her heroics vs the mighty Japanese

After a grand opening day at the Asian Games 2018, that saw Indians grabbing a gold and a bronze medal, the contingent will look to increase its medal count on Day 2 of the multi-sporting extravaganza in Indonesia. A bevy of Indian stars will be in action on Monday, August 20, with PV Sindhu, Saina Nehwal, Kidambi Srikanth, Vinesh Phogat, and Sakshi Malik being the most prominent names.

10m Air Rifle specialist Apurvi Chandela will look to win her second medal of the Games after having clinched the bronze in the mixed team category. Wrestling could bring home a host of medals and will be one of the biggest sports to watch.

Sindhu and Saina have an uphill task at hand as they have to battle the mighty Japanese in the women's team event. Srikanth & Co. too will have to deal with the tricky Indonesians.
