At 42 medals, India's current position on the leaderboard is no 3 and it is unlikely to change considering England, who are above them, have got 99 - 57 more than India. Australia, who lead the standings are soaring at 168. More importantly, India have got 17 golds while England and Australia have got 31 and 65 respectively. It is here that the last two days become important. Canada lead India by total medal tally but have three lesser golds than India have because of which they are fourth. India, in order to stick to its third position, need to win as many golds as they can on Day 10 and 11. If they do, this will be India's best finish since the 2010 Delhi Games.
