Commonwealth Games 2022 is at the most interesting point as Indian women's fours team registered a historic 17-10 win against South Africa in Lawn Bowls finals to clinch first for the country. Besides, Indian men are all set to face Singapore in the Table Tennis final. India can also expect a medal on Day 6 as Murali Shreeshankar and Muhammad Anees made it to the Long jump finals.

With 10 medals in the account, India would be looking to outperform South Africa for the 5th spot. The bigger challenge for India would be to win gold in most of their events to rank higher than South Africa or Canada. Besides, Scotland is another nation that is performing exceptionally well and might get more medals this year.

Whether India gets more gold medals or not, we’ll know later. So, here is how India looks at the Commonwealth games 2022 Birmingham.

Indian Winners: Mirabai Chanu, weightlifting, women's 49kg gold; Jeremy Lalrinnunga, weightlifting, men's 67kg, gold; Achinta Sheuli, weightlifting, men's 73kg, gold; Sanket Sargar, weightlifting, men's 55kg, silver; Bindyarani Devi, weightlifting, women's 55kg, silver; Gururaja Poojary, weightlifting, men's 61kg, bronze; Sushila Devi Likmabam, judo, women's 48kg, silver; Vijay Kumar Yadav, judo, men's 60kg, bronze; Harjinder Kaur, weightlifting, women's 71kg, bronze.

India’s biggest challenge would be to perform better than Scotland, Canada, and South Africa to maintain a high rapport. Today’s matches would decide how many medals India can win at the Birmingham CWG. Let us recall that India has been a high-performing nation in the Commonwealth Games since 2010, and this season could also be among the best performances by India now.
