Joshna-Dipika duo loses

Manika Batra won a historic women's singles table tennis gold for India at the CWG

She said that 49 athletes from RSPB participated in the CWG 2018 Games in disciplines like weightlifting, wrestling, hockey, athletics, basketball and gymnastics.

Besides guiding India to team gold, Batra had also paired up with veteran Mouma Das to win the country's maiden women's double silver in table tennis. With Joshna Chinappa playing a couple of deft cross-court shots, the 2014 gold medallists managed to claw it back to 9-10.

Defending champions Dipika Pallikal and Joshna Chinappa stormed into the final of women's doubles category while Dipika and Saurav Ghosal clinched silver in the mixed doubles of the squash competition at the 21st Commonwealth Games here on Saturday. In that game, the Indian pair made an outstanding comeback after losing the first game.

The duo Dipika and Ghosal had earlier defeated New Zealand's Joelle King and Paul Coll 2-1 (9-11, 11-8, 11-10) in a keenly-contested match to enter the final.

Pallikal and Chinappa, who had won the gold medal in the corresponding event at Glasgow four years ago, got off to a slow start in the first game, as the Kiwi pair, Landers-Murphy in particular came out all guns blazing.

Across 16 editions of the Commonwealth Games, India had a tally of 436 medals* (156 golds, 153 silvers and 127 bronze medals) before these Games. Landers-Murphy who is famed for her adept doubles tactics stood out with her superior know-how of the game.
