They needed just 42 minutes to demolish the challenge of the Sri Lankans and get in the reckoning for India's first-ever men's doubles medal in badminton at the Games. But the first half of the final round was all about Mary's aggression, however, she turned defensive in the final period, hardly allowing O'Hara to push in some punches. Brian hit all his four clays while Kynan missed his fourth clay.

This is India's 20th gold medal at the Games.

Brian was assisted with his coach Frans Bugeja during this event. This is the Indian boxer's first medal at Commonwealth Games and probably the last as she is expected to retire after this tournament. Latey had trained with scores of elite Indian Olympic athletes, yet Mary stood out.

Gaurav kick-started the game, throwing countless punches in the first round. Solanki won the final 4-1 on a split decision.

Bray, Hinch and Ellie Watton produced key blocks to deny India corners after the restart, with Hinch making two more key saves before Laura Unsworth fired wide from Pearne-Webb's pass.

"We usually compete before the boys, but they competed before us and won gold, so we thought we had better not embarrass ourselves", said Philip.

Australia tops the chart with 72 gold medals. This is the seventh CWG medal for Tejaswini, following two golds in 2006, a pair of silvers and a bronze in 2010 and a silver in women's 50m rifle prone in the ongoing edition.

Shooter Jo Harten scored in the final second to secure a 56-55 victory and set up a gold-medal match on Sunday against world number one side Australia, who thrashed New Zealand 65-44 in the other semi-final. "We will appeal against these decisions", General Team Manager, Namdev Shirgaonker said addressing a press conference that was also attended by the Indian chef-de-mission Vikram Sisodia. The Indian came up with a series of awe inspiring performances over the course of his campaign to win all his bouts by technical superiority and win his first major worldwide tournament in style. Following the 2012 Olympics, Yadav moved up to middleweight, winning a bronze medal at the 2014 Asian Games.
