After a disappointing Day 5 in Asian games 2018, where India failed to grab a Gold medal and men's kabaddi lost to Iran, India have a packed schedule on Day 6 at Jakarta and Palembang.

In shooting, Manu Bhaker will take part in Women's 10m Air Pistol event. Meanwhile, in boxing, Gaurav Solanki will take on Japan's Ryomei Tanaka in 52 Kg category. Manoj Kumar will clash with Wangdi Sangay in Men's Welter 69 Kg Round of 32. Teenager Anish Bhanwal would love to prove his mettle in Men's 25m Rapid Fire Pistol Qualification. India will hope to keep the good work going and win more medals at Jakarta and Palembang. With a lot of medals on the line, athletes of 45 nations, playing 58 different kinds of sports, will give their best to win one of those at the 18th Asian Games at Jakarta Palembang


Represented by 804 athletes and officials, the Indian contingent will aim to better the showing at the previous Asiad in Incheon, South Korea, where they finished eighth with 11 gold, 10 silver and 36 bronze medals on Asian Games Medal Tally.
