Archery: First, Second, and Third Set

Lacking in the first series, we win the first set with Atanu and Pravin hitting those bulls eye. Atanu and Pravin looking great whereas Tarundeep was looking a bit rusty, hope he gets better with time. Atanu hits a 9. Pravin follows with another 9, and Tarundeep Rai hits an 8. The Indians win the first 55-54. India leads the match 2-0.

India wins the second set 52-50 go go 4-0 up in the match. Atanu started off with a 10 and finished with a 9. Pravin Jadhav hit a 7 in this set.

Tarundeep just struggling a bit to find the centre, a 8 from him instead of 7 would have sealed the deal for India but as such Pravin-Atanus 10-10 didnt matter. Kazakhstan fight back, make it 4-2.
