Asian Games 2023 Day 2 Highlights: Indian women's cricket team on Monday won their maiden gold medal in Asian Games 2023 by defeating Sri Lanka by 19 runs in final. This is a historic feat achieved by the Indian Women's cricket team.
India, in a dazzling display of skill and prowess, achieved a remarkable feat by securing a new world record and capturing the gold medal in the men's 10 air rifle team event during the Asian Games 2023 in Hangzhou, China. This triumph unfolded on September 25, marking Day 3 of the prestigious sporting event.
The formidable Indian shooting squad, comprised of Divyansh Singh Panwar, Rudrankkash Balasaheb Patil and Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar, combined their talents to amass an impressive total of 1893.7 points, thereby establishing a fresh world record. Simultaneously, the Indian contingent participating in the men's four rowing final displayed their mettle, securing a well-deserved bronze medal with a commendable time of 6:10:81. However, it was a nail-biting moment for Balraj Panwar, who narrowly missed out on a medal, finishing in fourth place in the fiercely contested men's singles sculls final.
In the realm of swimming, Srihari Nataraj showcased his prowess by earning a spot in the men's 50m backstroke final, following a solid sixth-place finish in the heats.
All attention now shifts to the Indian women's cricket team, as they prepare to face off against Sri Lanka in the highly anticipated gold medal match. Additionally, fans can look forward to the mixed team table tennis action. Regrettably, both the men's and women's teams have bowed out of the competition, with the men's team falling to South Korea and the women's team succumbing to Thailand. Nevertheless, the sporting extravaganza continues, with numerous other events in which Indian athletes will vie for podium positions.
