Highlights, Commonwealth Games 2018 at Gold Coast, results: Manika Batra, Vikas Krishan help India end day 10 with 59 medals

What a brilliant day for Indian athletes at the Commonwealth Games 2018!

On Day 10, India won a whopping 17 medals to consolidate their third spot on the medals table. 

Every wrestler in the Indian contingent returned with a medal from Gold Coast. On Saturday, Vinesh Phogat picked up her second successive gold at a CWG event. Other wrestlers who claimed medals on Friday were Sumit(Gold), Somveer(bronze) and Sakshi Malik (Bronze),  

The impressive run of the boxers continued on day 10 as Mary Kom and Gaurav Solanki won gold in their CWG debut. While Vikas Krishan too added on to the gold rush of boxers, Manish Kaushik and Satish Kumar won silvers. 

Sanjeev Rajput won a gold in the men's rifle 3 positions. 

The Indian paddlers made history as Manika Batra became the first Indian woman shuttler to win a medal in the CWG 2018 when she won gold in the women's singles. Men's doubles pair of Harmeet Desai and Sanil Shetty won bronze while Sharath Kamal and Sathiyan Gnanasekaran won silver. 

The Indian shuttlers had a mixed outing as the doubles pairings were tested to their limits after multiple matches in various categories. While Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu set up a mouth-watering singles clash in the gold medal match, HS Prannoy lost out to Lee Chong Wei in the semi-final and missed out of making an all Indians men's singles final. Kidambi Srikanth beat England's Rajeev Ouseph for a place in the final and the Englishman won a bronze defeating Prannoy. Ashwini Ponnappa and Sikki Reddy won a bronze medal in the women's doubles

Defending women's doubles champions in squash, Dipika Pallikal and Joshna Chinappa entered the finals of the event and Dipika also won a silver in the mixed doubles final alongside Saurav Ghosal. 

That's it from here, thank you for joining us and let's see if India end on a high on 15 April, the final day of the Commonwealth Games 2018 at Gold Coast, Australia

Men's +91kg final

Satish claims sliver. Interesting decision from the judges. The Indian looked strong in Round 1 and Round 2. The third round was a tight affair. 

Satish delivered a series of body blows and uppercuts in the first round and was defensively strong. Charles did his bit with quick jabs and straight punches. Anyway, another medal for an Indian boxer!
