Sai Praneeth will now take on Mark Caljouw of Netherlands in his second and final group match. Only the topper from the group will progress to the Round of 16.
However, it was in break-points and forced errors that Nagal was better than his Uzbek opponent.
In clean and jerk, Mirabai had a confident lift of 110kg in the first attempt and 115kg in the second attempt. Though she couldn't lift 117kg in the final attempt, she was able to confirm a silver medal in the Olympics.
In the deciding, with India needing 20 points in the final two attempts, Deepika and Pravin held their nerve to shoot perfectly and win the set 37-36 and with it the match.
