Indian compound mixed pair of Abhishek Verma and Puvasha Shende opened their account by clinching the silver medal at the Archery World Cup Stage IV in Wroclaw, Poland.

The third seed Indian duo lost to the World No. 1 US pair of Braden Gellenthien and Crystal Gauvin 151-155 in an intense final on Saturday night.

Both the teams shot 38 each in the first end but the US gained a one point lead with India shooting 37 in the second.
