There were a lot of positives to take away from a very successful day for India.

The Indian contingent added more medals to its total tally in the ongoing 2022 Commonwealth Games. The women’s team created history by winning the country’s first-ever medal, a gold, in Lawn Bowls. Then there was joy in store for the fans who tuned in to table tennis as the men’s team won gold in the team event by beating Singapore in the gold medal match.

Vikas Thakur also delivered a silver medal in weightlifting on a successful day. While the Indian women’s hockey team tasted defeat, there were many more reasons to celebrate for the Indian contingent. Murali Sreeshankar and Muhammad Anees Yahiya were impressive in the long jump event and made it to the finals.
