Glimpses from the closing ceremony of CWG.

Commonwealth Games 2022 Highlights, Day 11 Schedule of India: P V Sindhu and young gun Lakshya Sen lived up expectations by grabbing gold medals as India swept the singles badminton competition while star doubles pair of Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy won the country’s third gold from the badminton court with straight-game victory over England’s Ben Lane and Sean Mendy at the Commonwealth Games.

In table tennis, Sharath Kamal extended his domination at the Commonwealth Games by winning the gold medal in men’s singles event, thrashing England’s Liam Pitchford 4-1 in the final while Sathiyan Gnanasekaran came away with the Bronze. It was heartbreak for the men’s hockey team, however, when they lost to a marauding Australia team 0-7 and had to settle for silver.

India ended their medal tally at 61, which includes 22 gold, 16 silver and 23 bronze and finished 4th in the overall table.
