Commonwealth Games 2022 Day 8 wrap: With 9 gold medals, India secures fifth spot

The eighth day of the ongoing Commonwealth Games saw Indian wrestlers taking centre stage, winning three more gold medals. Bajrang Punia, Sakshi Malik, and Deepak Punia were the ones that won gold in their respective weight categories to take India's medal tally to 26, including nine gold. As a result, the contingent is now at the fifth spot in the medals tally, ahead of Scotland and South Africa.

In terms of women's hockey, India lost to Australia in the penalty shoot-out but still has a chance for bronze. As of now Team India's medal tally now counts to 26. Day 9 of the Commonwealth Games 2022 will be another opportunity for India as Indian wrestlers will battle out for medals across categories. From Ravi Dahiya to Vinesh Phogat, a lot depends on the shoulders of Indian wrestlers on day 9. The women's cricket team will take on England in the semi-finals and if they win, at least a silver medal would be assured for India.
