India had a brilliant day 5 of the ongoing Commonwealth Games as India won gold for the first time in the women’s four lawn bowls, and this was the country’s first medal in the sport. A few hours later, the men’s table tennis team brought home the top laurel after beating Singapore in the men’s table tennis team. Weightlifter Vikas Thakur also won silver in the men’s 96 kg category. The Indian badminton side also won a silver medal in the mixed team event after falling short against Singapore in the final.
