·9 min read
  • Shooters Saurabh Chaudhary, Manu Bhaker finish 7th in 10m Air Pistol mixed team qualifications, miss out on medal round

  • India leading 2-0 against Spain in their men's hockey match

  • Elavenil Valarivan/Divyansh Singh Panwar and Anjum Moudgil/Deepak Kumar will be in action in the 10m Air Rifle Mixed Team Qualification at 10'45 AM

Hockey: Less than a minute to go now. The hooter goes off. INDIA WIN 3-0. What a comeback after Sunday's match! Simranjeet Singh opened the account for India in the 14th minute, after which Rupinder Pal Singh scored two more goals (15', 51') through PCs. Great character shown by the men-in-blue. Great energy, possession and defence on the field today. Hoping for a similar show in the upcoming macthes as well.

Hockey: A PC for Spain and once again it is deflected by Sreejesh. Now in the dying minutes of the game. Spain trying their best to attack. The Indian defence, though, is holding fort.

Hockey: 3 PCs on the trot for Spain and India save all three. It's a different Indian team on the field today. What an inspiring performance and comeback after the humiliating 7-1 defeat.

Hockey: Start of Q4. PR Sreejesh blocks an Alejandro Alonso shot. Simranjeet Singh creates a PC for India. GOALLLL! Rupinder Pal Singh makes it 3-0. A little over 8 minutes left in Q4.

Rupinder Pal Singh has now scored 3 goals at the Tokyo Olympics.

Hockey: India leading 2-0 at the end of Q3. Spain dominated possession and put pressure of the Indian defence. Sumit recieved a green card. The end was full of drama. Spain thought they scored but the hooter went off and disallowed the goal. Spain asked for a review for a PC and it was granted. However, the Indian defence saved the day.

India's schedule for today:

8.30 AM, Badminton, Men’s Doubles Group A Match: Satwiksairaj Rankireddy/Chirag Shetty vs Ben Lane/Sean Vendy

8.30 AM, Table Tennis, Men’s Singles Round 3 Match: Achanta Sharath Kamal vs Ma Long

Hockey: A yellow card for Spain in Q3. Down to 10 men for five minutes.

Hockey: India leading 2-0 at half-time. After the 7-1 drubbing at the hands of Australia two days ago, this team is playing with much more freedom and confidence. That game was in the past and it seems the men in blue have forgotten all about it, which is the right way to go about it. A new day, a new beginning. They are not feeling the pressure today and that is evident from the scoreline. Have been good in defence.

Hockey: Some much needed joy for India. Rupinder Pal Singh makes it 2-0 for India through a penalty stroke. End of Q1. What a start for India! That is how you comeback from 1-7 loss. What an inspired show!

Hockey: GOALLLL! Simranjeet Singh opens the account for India in the 14th minute.
