The fifth day of the Commonwealth Games 2022 (CWG 2022) witnessed the India contingent adding two more gold medals to their tally. The women's lawn bowls team clinched a historic gold medal by beating South Africa in the final while the men's table tennis team beat Singapore to retain the crown. The badminton mixed doubles team, however, failed to defend the title after losing to Malaysia in the final while Vikas Thakur won the silver medal in weightlifting.

Day 6 of the Birmingham Games will see India getting a chance to increase their medal tally as athletes will be competing for medals across boxing, weightlifting, squash and athletics events. Lovpreet Singh and Gurdeep Singh will be competing in men's 109kg category in weightlifting while Purnima Pandey will present her challenge in women's 87kg. Indian boxers Nikhat Zahreen, Lovlina Borgohain and Hussam Uddin Mohammed will be in action on Day 6 of the Commonwealth Games 2022 and will be hoping to advance to the next round. 

After crushing Pakistan in the previous match, India's women's cricket will look to beat Barbados in the day-night encounter and qualify for the final four at the CWG 2022. In hockey, both men and women will face Canada and will look to make amends for their previous slip-ups. In athletics, Manpreet Kaur will be in action in the shot put final, while Tejaswin Shankar will be competing for a medal in the high jump final. After the semi-final exit, Saurav Ghosal has a chance to salvage some pride by winning bronze in Birmingham Games. Check out CWG 2022 India Schedule below:
