BIRMINGHAM: It was another memorable day for India at the Commonwealth Games (CWG) 2022 as Indian judoka Shushila Devi won the silver medal in the women -48kg category, her second in CWG history.
On the fourth day of the multi-sports event, India clinched three medals — one silver and two bronze.
Besides Shushila, Vijay Kumar also won a bronze in the Men’s 60kg division to give India a second medal in judo on the day. These were India’s first medals outside the six in weightlifting that they have won so far, which include three gold.

Harjinder Kaur fought back in the clean and jerk category to win the bronze medal in the women’s 71kg category in weightlifting.
India remain in sixth place on the medals tally with 3 gold, 3 silver and 3 bronze medals.
Indian Women’s Fours team comprising Lovely Choubey, Pinky, Nayanmoni Saikia and Rupa Rani Tirkey created history in lawn bowls as they assured themselves of a first-ever medal in the discipline at the Games by entering the gold-medal match against South Africa on Tuesday. The Indian quartet beat New Zealand 16-13 in the semifinals.
PV Sindhu looked in top form as the mixed team advanced to the final in badminton.

The Indian badminton Mixed Team unit comprising the likes of PV Sindhu, Kidambi Srikanth, Lakshay Sen and the duo of Chirag Shetty and Satwik Sairaj Rankireddy also assured themselves of a medal after storming through to the finals with a 3-0 sweep of Singapore.
The doubles duo of Chirag and Satwik began the rout, with Sindhu making it 2-0 before Lakshay Sen swept world champion Loh Kean Yew in straight games.
The Indian men’s table tennis team, defending its 2018 gold medal, defeated Nigeria in the semifinal to book their berth in the medal round.

Boxer Amit Panghal also won his opening bout at the Games, while swimmer Srihari Nataraj finished fifth in the men’s 50m backstrokes final.
On the hockey field, the men’s team came away with a 4-4 result against hosts England. However, the Indian team will be disappointed as they squandered a 4-1 lead to concede a point to the hosts.
India began the big game with a bang, netting thrice in the first 22 minutes through Lalit Upadhyay (2nd minute), Mandeep Singh (13th) and Akashdeep Singh (22nd).

England, however, scripted a brilliant comeback in the second half of the game with Liam Ansel getting one back in the 42nd minute. Although Harmanpreet scored India’s fourth soon after, strikes from Philip Roper (50th) in between two from Bandurak (47th and 53tg) saw England draw level.
In Squash, Saurav Ghosal made it through to the men’s singles semifinals with a classy victory in four games over the Scot Greg Lobban in the quarterfinals. Ghosal soldiered on with a 11-5, 8-11, 11-7, 11-3 result.
