04:00 AM: A very good morning to all our readers. Hello and welcome to Live coverage of Day 6 of India’s action at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Wednesday was the sort of day when almost everything unfolded as it was expected for India. Rio Olympic medallist PV Sindhu and seasoned archer Deepika Kumari marched into the last-16 of their respective events, debutant boxer Pooja Rani (75kg) won her easy opening bout without a fuss to enter the last-eight stage and the women’s hockey team stared at early elimination after failing to upstage defending champions Great Britain. It was, in a nutshell, another mixed day for the country which is waiting for its second medal after the spectacular silver by weightlifter Mirabai Chanu on the opening day of competitions.
Indian golfers – Anirban Lahiri and Udayan S Mane – will kick off the proceedings shortly in men’s individual stroke play round 1. The focus on Thursday will however be on Sindhu, MC Mary Kom, and the Indian men’s hockey team, all of whom will be vying for a place in the quarters. Here’s all you can expect from the Indian contingent on Wednesday, July 28.
