The Indian contingent will be in action on day 9 at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games (CWG) 2022 on Saturday, August 6, 2022. The CWG has 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.
Cricket (Gold Medal match)
India vs Australia (9.30 PM)
The India women’s team who blew away England on Saturday will take on Australia on Sunday for the gold medal. All-rounder Sneh Rana showed nerves of steel by choking runs in death overs as India pipped the hosts by four runs to enter the final. Australia, meanwhile, defeated New Zealand by 5 wickets in a closely contested match to book their berth in the final.
Hockey (Bronze Medal match)
India vs New Zealand (1.30 PM)
The India women’s hockey team would look to put the horrendous ‘clock’ controversy behind its back while eyeing a podium finish when it takes on New Zealand in the bronze medal match in the Commonwealth Games on Sunday.
