Gymnastics - Artistic - Olympics: Day 9
Dipa Karmakar

Having made a strong comeback post-surgery with a gold medal at the World Challenge Cup just a few weeks back, all eyes will be on India's star gymnast, Dipa Karmakar on Day 3 of the Asian Games 2018 in Indonesia. The archery competition too gets under way and Deepika Kumari will hope to build on her Salt Lake World Cup gold medal-winning form after recovering from a bout of dengue. All the recurve archers will be in action in the ranking rounds on Tuesday.

In shooting, Sanjeev Rajput will be India's biggest medal hope in 50m Rifle 3 Positions. Abhishek Verma, who pipped Jitu Rai to get into the Asiad squad, will be one to watch in 10m Air Pistol.

Elsewhere, the tennis stars will continue their campaign as they aim for a quarter-final berth. The Indian men's kabaddi team will hope to rebound from a rare loss. The women's kabaddi team and the women's hockey team too feature on the schedule.

One sport which might bring India a medal is bridge, which makes its debut at the Asian Games on Tuesday.
