Hello and welcome to Scroll’s live coverage of the 2022 Asian Games in Hangzhou!

More medals to be won on Monday as India opened their medal tally in fine fashion with two medals in shooting and three in rowing. It was joy and sadness in football as the men’s team qualified for the Round of 16 while the women ended their campaign in the group stage. Table tennis saw both the men’s and women’s teams exit in the quarter-final and Round of 16 stages respectively.

Today is a new day and a chance for India to add to the gold medal field in their overall medal tally.

Shooting will kickstart the day as India will compete in the 10m air rifle men’s team and individual event along with the 25m men’s rapid fire pistol team event.

Balraj Panwar and other Indian rowers will be competing in four medal finals beginning from 7am IST.

And finally, the Indian women’s cricket team will be buoyed by the return of Harmanpreet Kaur when they take on Sri Lanka in the gold medal match at the Pingfeng Campus Cricket Field, starting at 11.30am IST.

Aside from these events, India will also be competing in women’s volleyball, wushu, boxing, swimming, sailing and much more!
