After an eventful opening day, the Commonwealth Games 2022 is set to usher in Day 2 which promises to be equally, if not more enthralling. The second day would witness two of India’s Tokyo medallists-Mirabai Chanu and Lovlina Borgohain be in action in the weightlifting and boxing events respectively. Although a major part of the focus is set to be on them, eyes would also be on the Indian team’s performance against Sri Lanka in the mixed-team badminton event. The shuttlers dominated Pakistan on the first day and would aim to repeat a similar performance against their Asian neighbours. Here we would take a look at the highlights and results from Day 2.

Earlier on Day 1, Australia reigned supreme after the first day with eight gold medals and a top spot on the medal table with New Zealand and hosts England following in at second and third places. India also had a productive day with the shuttlers and paddlers defeating Pakistan to advance in their respective events. However, 14-year-old Anahat Singh, who is also the youngest in India’s CWG 2022 squad, progressed through to the next round with a superb victory in squash.
India have sent a contingent of 215 athletes who will be looking to secure a medal for the country. India are fourth on the all-time medal table and will be hoping to better their best-ever campaign at the 2010 edition in Delhi.
