Commonwealth Games 2022 day 5: India win gold in Table Tennis and Lawn Bowl

The women’s fours lawn bowling team from India made history by taking home a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. It is India’s first medal in the sport, and the squad put up a fantastic performance to defeat a formidable South African team in the final.

India now has four gold medals in the Commonwealth Games thanks to the triumph. The South Africans rallied back strongly to go ahead 10-8 after the Indians had sprung out to a sizable lead in the early exchanges, and at one stage it appeared as though the gold was slipping away.

However, the Indian team maintained composure in the final three sets to win 17-10. Lovely Choubey, the 38-year-old “leader” of the group, is a policeman with the Jharkhand Police, and Rupa Rani Tirkey, also from Ranchi, works for the state department of sports.

While Nayanmoni Saikia hails from a farming family in Assam and works in the state’s forest department, Pinki, a sports instructor at DPS R K Puram in New Delhi, picked up the sport by chance during the 2010 CWG in Delhi.

In giving up a 0-5 lead after the second end of their semi-final matchup with New Zealand, the Indian team battled back to defeat the Kiwi team of Selina Goddard (lead), Nicole Toomey (second), Tayle Bruce (third), and Val Smith (skip).

After end-9, the score was level at 7-7, but India led after end-10, 10-7. The score between the two teams was 13-12 with New Zealand slightly in front after end-14. Tirkey’s outstanding stroke gave India the victory with a score of 16–13.

Tuesday at the Commonwealth Games 2022, the defending champions of table tennis, India, defeated Singapore 3-1 to win the coveted gold medal once more. It was India’s second medal on Day 5 and its first medal in the sport at the CWG 2022.

Both teams saved game chances in the opening game of the doubles match before India took it 13-11 at the Commonwealth Games.

However, the Indian team of Harmeet Desai and Sathiyan Gnanasekaran was more effective in the second game against Singapore’s Yong Izaac Quek and Yew En Koen Pang as they easily went 2-0 up with a win of 11-7 and utterly dominated the third game, winning it 11-5 in a flash.
