Sindhu added to India’s medal tally after a long wait since Mirabai Chanu won the silver medal. Starting the day for India, Dutee Chand clocked her season-best timing of 23.85 seconds in the women’s 200 m race but finished last in the heat., failing to qualify for the semifinal.
Rani Rampal-led India will be facing a tough challenge to get to the semi-finals as they face Australia. Vandana Katariya will be in focus after her hat-trick against South Africa helped India stay in contention. India will also pin hopes on Kamalpreet as she will be throwing the 1kg disc in hope of a medal. Indian shooters have had a disappointing campaign in the Games so far.

Australia appeal for a foul. Review upheld and they get a penalty corner. Team India manage to keep it away from the goalpost again. Three minutes to go, credit to the Indian girls, they have not parked the bus, still looking for a break. They still lead Australia 1-0.

Green card for Nikki Pradhan. She will sit out of the game for two minutes out of the five remaining. The match has become super intense, a foul from Malone and some pressure is relieved off India. India lead 1-0

Hockey Half-time: India 1-0 Australia:
Half time and its India 1 Australia 0. Incredible stuff from India. They needed to play a perfect game to stand a chance and perfect it has been so far. Very even game but India womens 30 minutes away from their biggest moment at the Olympics. A courageous performance by the Indians, need to maintain this sort of aggression in the second half.

Engrossing first half of the quarterfinal between India and Australia. Both teams hitting the post once. Very high quality overall but nothing to separate. India captain Rani Rampal hit the woodwork and it was the closest we could get to a goal lead

Hockey: Fierce start:
Australia are on the attack from the first whistle. And they start by hitting the post, rattling the Indian defence and giving early reasons to worry to the women in blue. On counter attack, Ranis shot deflects from the goalpost after a wonderful passing from Salima and then by Vandana. Ranis shot deflects from the goalpost.
