Sindhu is hoping to win her first CWG gold right here, after winning the Singapore Open.

“Winning the Singapore Open gives me a lot of confidence.” Of course, victory was desperately desired by this one. So I’m hoping that the rhythm will continue and

Unlike in the previous three matches, Pakistan attempted to take the fight to the Indians. Rankireddy and Chirag, on the other hand, quickly found their stride and won 21-12, 21-9.
Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand of India dominated Mahoor Shahzad and Ghazala Siddique in the final ladies’ doubles match, winning 21-4, 21-5.
