India bag three gold medals in Badminton

It was a day to rejoice for Indian badminton as its ace player PV Sindhu, who had previously won a bronze in the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, and a silver in the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, finally changed the colour of her medal to gold by winning the Women’s Singles final against Canada’s Michelle Li in straight sets. 

Happiness was also increased by Lakshya Sen as he won gold in his first ever Commonwealth Games by beating Malaysia’s Tze Yong NG in a three-set thriller. He had lost the first set. 

However, it was the gold from the pair of Satwik Siaraj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty in the Men’s Doubles category that stole all the limelight as it should have. For the first time ever, India managed to win a men’s Doubles gold in Commonwealth Games’ Badminton event. The dance of Satwik after that was just icing on the cake. They beat the English pair of Sean Vendy and Ben Lane in straight sets as well.

Indian hockey’s wait for Commonwealth gold extended

The Indian team looked a pale shadow of its Olympics self as it was not able to create even a single sure shot chance to score. The attack from the team was so bad that in 60 minutes of hockey played, it was not able to create even a single penalty corner.
