Mirabai Chanu's weightlifting silver medal continues to be India's only return from Tokyo Olympics so far. Predictions of archers and shooters winning medals at Tokyo 2020 have remained in the realm of conjecture but there is enough hope round the corner. The badminton doubles team of Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy lost to the world's No. 1 team but they can still make the knockouts from their group. And veteran table tennis star Achanta Sharath Kamal is in the third round where he will face world champion Ma Long of China. (MEDAL TALLY | Day 4 HIGHLIGHTS)

The archery team went as far as the quarterfinals but ran into the terrific South Koreans. Veteran shooter Mairaj Ahmed Khan and the younger Angad Vir Singh Bajwa failed to qualify for the skeet finals. The day ended on a losing note as India's women's hockey team suffered its second straight defeat in a group match against Germany. Rani's team lost 2-0.
