Asian Games 2018: India Schedule, Match List for August 24
The Indian men's team were knocked off their kabaddi perch at the Asian Games on Thursday as they were sent packing by Iran, but the women will look to go one better as they play the Iranian women today in the gold medal match. It was the final everyone expected, now it remains to be seen if India, the favourites, can claim the gold. 1:30 pm is when you need to tune in.
Friday will also be a day to look towards the gymnastics floor as Dipa Karmakar and Yogeshwar Singh get set to compete in finals action. Karmakar is in the final of the Women's Balance Beam while Singh is in the Men's Vault competition.
Heena Sidhu and Manu Bhaker are expected to do well in the Women's 10m Air Pistol event with the qualification in the morning and final at 11:30 AM. The final of the Men's 300m Standard Rifle features Amit Kumar and Harjinder Singh.
In tennis, Rohan Bopanna and Divij Sharan go for gold in the Men's Doubles while Prajnesh Guneswaran looks to make the final as he plays Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan in the semis.
India missed a bronze by just 0.33 seconds on Thursday in one of the rowing competitions and today there are five more finals where Indian rowers will try to achieve a podium finish.
India's male shuttlers Kidambi Srikanth and HS Prannoy get their singles campaigns underway as they look to put the disappointment of the team competition behind them.
All of India's squash players won their opening singles matches on Thursday and all four play again today.
