Asian Games 2018: India Schedule Today, Match List for August 25
Kidambi Srikanth and HS Prannoy may have fallen by the wayside, but the women will look to keep the flag flying tomorrow in badminton. PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal both play their pre-quarters today while the duo of Ashwini Ponnappa and Siki Reddy play in the quarterfinals. The two men's doubles teams are also in pre-quarterfinal play.
Athletics competition tips off tomorrow and Hima Das, who recently won gold at the IAAF U-20 World Championships, takes part in the Women's 400m Heats tomorrow. Das and Nirmla are the two participants in this event. Sarita Singh is in the final of the Women's Hammer Throw while Tajinderpal Singh is in the final of the Men's Shot Put.
The big match(es) of the day come from the squash arena. Both of India's women have made the semis in singles action. They have Malaysian opponents facing them in the final four with Dipika Pallikal facing a particularly daunting task against former world number 1 and current number nine Nicol David. Joshna Chinappa meanwhile is up against Sivasangari Subramaniam, who is ranked lower than her. An all-Indian final would be unbelievable!
On the men's side, Saurav Ghosal won the all-India battle yesterday against Harinder Pal Sandhu which sees him in the semis too with a chance to make the final.
The Indian women's hockey team takes on Korea in a crucial Pool B match.
Team competition continues in archery with Indian men's and women's teams in pre-quarterfinal action in the Recurve.
