Vanshaj (63.5kg) won 5-0 against Tajikistan's Makhkamov Dovud, while Daksh Singh (67kg) defeated Kyrgyzstan's Eldar Turdubaev 4-1.

Suresh Vishvanath (48kg) was up against Kyrgyzstan's Amantur Zholbborosv and prevailed 5-0.

Rabindra Singh lost 2-3 to Tajikistan's Yoqubov Abdurrahim.

India's assured medal tally stood at over 20 on the day of draws itself as many countries either skipped or fielded smaller squads due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

The gold medallists in the youth category will receive prize money of USD 6,000 while silver and bronze medallists will claim USD 3,000 and USD 1,500, respectively.

The junior champions will be awarded USD 4,000 for the gold, while silver and bronze medallists will receive USD 2,000 and 1,000, respectively.
