The Indian contingent will be in action on day 7 at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games (CWG) 2022 on Thursday, August 4, 2022. The CWG have been a happy hunting ground for the largest nation in the Commonwealth. A top-five finisher since the 2002 edition, India has relied a lot on the shooting dropped from the Birmingham Games programme. Going ahead in the 2022 Birmingham Games, they will be aiming to at least match their 66-medal haul from the previous Gold Coast edition. India had finished third in Gold Coast, with as many as 26 golds, 20 silver, and 20 bronze medals in their kitty.

Sreeshankar, who secured an automatic qualification, is prime contender for a gold medal finish in the event. The 23-year-old has been consistent with 8m-plus jumps this season and will look to make amends for a 7th place finish at the World Championships last month.

Men’s Pool B – India versus Wales – 6.30 PM

Having bounced back with an 8-0 win after a disappointing 4-4 result vs England, India men would want to finish their Pool B journey with a win to top and avoid playing Australia in the semi-finals. Manpreet Singh and co. win their first game against Ghana 11-0, which gives them an edge in terms of goal difference. Even a 1-0 win would mean they finish on top of the table.
