Jakarta, Aug 21 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 8/21/2018 11:58:11 AM IST

 India grabbed their first ever medal in Sepaktakraw at the Asian Games 2018 on Tuesday as they were defeated by Thailand 2-0 in the semi-finals.

Even though India failed to advance to the final and assure themselves of a silver, the bronze medal was an untouched territory and India will surely be happy with their performance in the multi-sport event at Jakarta and Palembang. India began their campaign with a 2-1 win over Iran but lost their second match 2-0 against Indonesia.

However, since Iran had lost both their matches, they were eliminated and India advanced to the semi-finals, assuring themselves of a bronze medal.

While the men’s team came out with an inspired performance at the Asian Games, the women’s team were not able to take an inspiration from their performance and lost all three of their group games.

India women opened their campaign with a 3-0 to Korea after which they showed a bit of intent before going down 2-1 against Laos. On Tuesday, they lost 3-0 to Thailand, failing to make it to the semis.
