  • Bajrang leads Indian wrestlers' charge at CWG

Amongst the medal rush on Saturday for India and its fans, a piece of disappointing news was the performance of the men's hockey team as they slumped to a disappointing loss at the hands of England in the bronze-medal playoff at the Commonwealth Games 2018 now underway in Gold Coast Australia.

"This is the first time I will be India's flag-bearer in an event like this".

The men had seen England's women thrash India 6-0 in their own bronze medal match earlier in the day, but this contest was a much closer affair as Robert Crutchley's side took it 2-1.

Amit, who was chasing his third successive worldwide gold, was beaten by England's European silver-medallist Galal Yafai.

Aqeel Ahmed of Scotland and Amit of India compete in the Men's 46-49kg Quarterfinal Boxing on day six of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games at Oxenford Studios on April 10, 2018 on the Gold Coast, Australia. She registered the victory against Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara in the final of 45-48 kg weight victory. India has won 16 silver and 18 bronze medals till now at the 21 Commonwealth Games.

Asked what India has learned heading towards the upcoming World Cup in London, Rani said: "We are playing England in our first game and we need to work towards that". On becoming the youngest athlete in the Indian team, he said, "I'm very excited that I became the Commonwealth champion". The 21-year-old got his punches, uppercuts and jabs well on target before retreating to stoutly defend himself from the counters of his opponent. We give it to them too easily and that's been happening the whole tournament.

Boxer Gaurav Solanki won gold medal in the men's flyweight (52 kilogram) category.

Grappler strikes gold in 65kg event, Khatri, Pooja claim silver each; Divya bags bronze. Pooja had defeated Joseph Tiako of Cameroon 11-5 in the semi-finals.

Veteran Sharath has also reached semi-finals in the singles and the mixed doubles categories - as are Mouma, Manika and Sathiyan.

Nigeria's Blessing Oborududu celebrated her wrestling gold in the women's 68-kilo freestyle wrestling by rolling around on the mat in joy as her beaten opponent Danielle Lappage looked on unamused.
