India's women's regu sepak takraw team faced a tough semifinal loss to Thailand at the Asian Games on Friday. Despite the defeat, this historic moment marked India's first-ever bronze medal in women's sepak takraw at the Asian Games, only the second for the country in this sport.

Facing a formidable Thai opponent in the semifinals, India's women's regu sepak takraw team put up a valiant effort but ultimately succumbed to a 10-21, 13-21 defeat.

The journey for the Indian women's regu team began with a challenging match against Vietnam, which ended in a defeat. However, they bounced back securing a victory against China.

The turning point came when China faced a loss against Vietnam on Friday, confirming the Indian women's regu team's spot in the semifinals and assuring them of at least a bronze medal.

While the women's team celebrates their historic achievement, the Indian men's Sepak Takraw team, however, failed to qualify for the semifinals this year. In 2018, the men's regu team reached the semifinals but narrowly missed out on a spot in the finals, ultimately securing a bronze medal for India.
