Bhowneesh’s first and third rounds were perfect 25s. He missed only the 28th and 43rd targets and looked solid throughout.

His senior team-mates Zoravar Sandhu and Prithviraj Tondaiman were placed 16th and 23rd among the contenders, after shooting scores of 71 and 70 respectively. Both of them would be looking at perfect rounds on Saturday to harbour any hopes of qualifying for the final round.

In women’s trap, Shreyasi Singh was the best-placed Indian, having shot 70 to lie eighth.

Rio Olympics champion Catherine Skinner of Australia was leading the field with 73. India’s Manisha Keer was lying 22nd with a score of 65, while Preeti Rajak was 28th with a score of 61.

With a silver and a bronze, both in women’s skeet, India are currently fourth on the medals tally.
