The Commonwealth Games got underway on July 29 and the first day was sort of a mixed bag for the Indian contingent. The Indian badminton team got the better of Pakistan as they registered a 5-0 win as PV Sindhu and Kidambi Srikanth showed their class. On the other hand, the Indian women’s cricket suffered a disappointing result as they came up short against Australia at Edgbaston. In boxing, Shiva Thapa quite easily won his men’s Round of 32 bout against Pakistan’s Suleman Baloch. The Indian women’s hockey team defeated Ghana quite comprehensively while in aquatics, Kushagra Rawat was eliminated in the Men’s 400m Freestyle event after he finished last in Heat 3. The 14-year-old squash player Anahat Singh, made a winning start in the women’s singles competition The Indian women’s table tennis team also registered a 3-0 victory vs South Africa.
On the second day, the focus would be on weightlifter Mirabai Chanu and whether she can help India open its account in terms of medal today itself.
