Gold Coast: Indian star shuttlers PV Sindhu, Saina Nehwal, Kidambi Srikanth and the men's doubles pair of Satwik Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty reached the finals while the women's doubles combine of Ashwini Ponnappa and N. Sikki Reddy bagged the bronze medal at the 21st Commonwealth Games at Gold Coast on Saturday.

"A Games of innovation, inspiration, color and vibrancy with an exuberant Gold Coast buzz - embracing us all with your warmth and friendship".

In the evening session, Vikas, a former Asian Games gold-medallist and world bronze-medallist, pummelled Cameroons Dieudonne Wilfried Ntsengue to claim the third gold for India. "The mixed doubles was a close tie for Satwik and Ashwini, which we could have got another medal".

Akani Simbine led a South African 1-2 to win the men's 100m in 10.03 seconds, while Jereem Richards was handed the 200m after England's Zharnel Hughes was disqualified for hindering the Trinidadian as they raced across the line in 20.12 seconds. We had at least, 11 semi-finalists which we had not seen in a long time. Neeraj Chopra became the first javelin thrower from India to win a gold at the Games, while Mary Kom also won a medal of the same colour in her first (and probably last) CWG. "They did get it wrong tonight". I've got to say it's about the only thing they got wrong.

Beattie was then quick to apologise for his remarks. "And I'm furious - they're actually wrecking a tradition that is so important and part of the Commonwealth Games".

"Definitely, athletics is on the upward swing in the country", he said.

He said the calibre of the athletes has been unparalleled showcasing world record holders, sporting greats and breakthrough performances from young athletes.

But how did the Indian contingent fared at the Commonwealth Games 2018 in comparison to Commonwealth Games 2010?
