CWG 2018: Manika Batra storms to TT singles gold

Indian paddlers Manika Batra and Mouma Das

Manika Batra won her fourth medal at the Commonwealth Games after winning the bronze in the mixed doubles table tennis, teaming up with Sathiyan Gnanasekaran.

Packing a smart mind and executing well thought out plans, the Delhi-based player ensured that Singapore's Mengyu Yu would end up being a silver-medallist for the third Commonwealth Games in-a-row with a 11-7, 11-6, 11-2, 11-7 victory in half an hour to set off celebrations across thousands of miles away. Ergo, with little hope resting on their shoulders, Indian paddlers headed down to Gold Coast for the 21st Commonwealth Games.

Indians are in line for three gold medals on the badminton courts in the Carrara Spots Arena. Pallikal had earlier won silver in the mixed doubles with Saurav Ghoshal.

While the spotlight has been on young Manika, seasoned Sharath Kamal too had a successful campaign here as he won three medals, one gold, one silver and one bronze.

"I am feeling really happy and very proud for my country", Manika said after her singles win. Similarly, the men and women's hockey teams will remain work in progress and have some distance to cover before they can challenge the world's top teams consistently. Sharath, gold medallist in 2006 in Melbourne, guided India to the men's team title, winning crucial matches in semis against Singapore, and Nigeria in the final. Saina will now take on the victor of PV Sindhu and Michelle Li in the final.

Manika Batra reached women's singles final in table tennis.

The 10-member Indian table tennis team secured 8 (3 Gold, 2 Silver and 3 Bronze) medals, which turned out to be their best-ever medal haul in the history of the Games. The top seeds lost to an English pair in the final.

The heart-break in the later stages of the day notwithstanding, India had an otherwise fruitful outing with the men's doubles combination of Achanta Sharath Kamal and G Sathiyan booking their place in the summit clash with a 7-11, 11-5, 11-1, 11-3 win over Singapore's Pang Yew En Koen and Poh Shao Feng Ethan.
