6th standing after three days, the Indian contingent has done well for itself with 14 medals in the ongoing 19th Asian Games in Hangzhou, China. Obviously, there are expectations for more and that there could have been more so far, but the event has just begun and the goal towards a century of medals may seem distant but is still possible. The equestrian dressage team scripted history on Tuesday, September 26 with a mixed team gold and there are several more in the pipeline.

Shooters and sailors will be the top contenders for a podium finish on Wednesday, September 27. The quartet of Sudipti Hajela, Divyakriti Singh, Anush Agarwalla and Hriday Chheda will be in action in their individual events, the women's hockey team will take on Singapore while the paddlers will begin their campaigns as well. 

World champion Nikhat Zareen takes centre stage as well as Shiva Thapa will also be in the ring with chess players in touching distance of medals. A medal in Wushu was already confirmed by Roshibina Devi but she will hope to go further in the competition when she fights in the 60kg semi-finals.
