India's disappointments at not being able to add to their medal tally increased further on the fourth day, with mixed team shooters Manu Bhaker and Saurabh Chaudhary failing to qualify for the medal round of the 10m Air Pistol event, despite ending on top at the end of Stage 1 of the event. Abhishek Verma and Yashaswini Deswal's campaign too was cut to a premature end in the same event. In badminton, the pair of Satwik Sairaj Reddy and Chirag Shetty won their match, but were unable to qualify for the quarter-finals. Table-tennis ace Sharath Kamal lost out in the third round of the men's singles competition. But in all of this, the bright spots for India came through the men's hockey team, which defeated Spain 3-0 to script a comeback, after being thrashed 7-1 by Australia a day earlier. Also, boxer Lovlina Borghoain qualified for the quarter-final in the women's welter (64-69 kg) event after defeating Germany's Nadine Apetz in the Preliminary Round of 16 clash.
