The 5th day of the ongoing Commonwealth Games in India was spectacular as India won the gold medal in the women’s four lawn bowl event for the first time and it was the country’s first medal in the sport. A few hours later, the men’s table tennis team defeated Singapore in the men’s table tennis team event to take the top spot. Weightlifter Vikas Thakur also won a silver medal in the men’s 96kg category. The Indian badminton team also won a silver medal in the mixed team event after losing in the final against Singapore.
