On Day 2 of the ongoing Commonwealth Games, India opened its medal tally with weightlifter Sanket Sargar who won a silver medal in the 55kg weight category. Shortly after, Gururaja Poojary won a bronze medal in the 61kg weight category and then Mirabai Chanu really made the day shine with her gold in the women’s 49kg category. In badminton, India eventually won the mixed team event matches after beating Sri Lanka 5-0 and then Australia 4-1, while boxer Mohammed Hussamuddin defeated South African Amzolele Dyeyi in the men’s featherweight category to advance to the pre-quarterfinals, and Lovlina Borgohain also advanced to the quarters in her light middleweight category.
The contingent would hope for a consistent show on Day 3 of the ongoing event, and the day would also see a high-tension clash between India and Pakistan in women’s cricket. The men’s hockey team would also start their campaign with a game against Ghana.
