Deepika Kumari will battle for a bronze in the individual recurve section after she lost in the semifinal of the Archery World Cup Stage IV being held in Wroclaw, Poland.

According to information received here, Deepika lost to Jing Xu of China 5-6 in the semifinals on Thursday and she will now take on Tatiana Segina of Russia in the bronze medal play-off on Sunday.
