The women`s team`s performance was the only saving grace for the Indians as the fancied men`s team of Tarundeep Rai, Jayanta Talukdar and Rahul Banerjee had crashed out in the quarters.
- According to information received here, India did not pose any challenge to their Korean counterparts going down 212-222 in a one-sided affair.
- Swuro and Deepika featured in the women`s individual events but only to make first-round exit.
- Swuro went down to Miranda Leek of USA 3-7, Deepika was ousted by Yuting Fang by an identical scoreline.
