The Indian women's hockey team; the nation’s 10m rifle and pistol shooters; wrestlers like Sushil Kumar and Bajrang Punia; and the men's badminton team, led by HS Prannoy and Kidambi Srikanth, will kick-start India’s campaign on Day 1 of the 18th Asian Games, being held in Jakarta and Palembang.

The men's badminton team will face Maldives — who have named just a four-man contingent for the Asiad — in their opener.

India’s prospects look bright on the wrestling mat, where two-time Olympic medallist Sushil and the promising Bajranj Punia will lead the nation’s charge.
