Day 6 action began with hockey and the Indian men's team played out a hard-fought match against Malaysia and won 2-1. With that win, India entered the semi-finals of the event.
Later in the day, the women's hockey team emulated the same feat and entered the semi-final by beating South Africa 1-0 courtesy a field goal by captain Rani Rampal.
The day started off disappointingly for the Indian shooting contingent as Gagan Narang failed to make it to the podium for the first time in his CWG career. Chain Singh came 4th in the same rifle prone event.
However, the disappointment soon turned into jubilation when Heena Sidhu picked up the gold in the 25m pistol event.
In squash, India had a brilliant day as Joshna Chinappa and Dipika Pallikal, not only mounted a successful start to their women's doubles title defence, but also won the mixed doubles matches with their respective partners Harinder Sandhu and Saurav Ghosal.
It was an impressive day for India in athletics. Hima Das became the first Indian woman to enter a track final after her speed of 51.53 seconds in the women's 400m was one of the two fastest losers. In the men's 400m event, Muhammad Anas Yahiya ran a dream run in the final, but missed out on a medal by a mere 0.2 seconds.
It was a brilliant day for the Indian boxers as Naman Tanwar, Manoj Kumar, Satish Kumar and Hussamuddin Mohammed won their respective quarter-final bouts to ensure India return from the CWG with a rich haul.
That's it from us for today. Join us tomorrow morning for Day 7 action at the Commonwealth Games 2018
