Now, coming to table tennis competition in CWG, Indian player Manika Batra claimed gold in women's singles beating Yu Mengyu of Singapore at the Gold Coast on Friday.

India ended their Commonwealth Games campaign in squash with two Silver medals after Dipika Pallikal and Joshna Chinappa went down fighting in the women's doubles final here on Sunday.

"I can understand Dipika is upset but refereeing was not a major issue for me".

The Gold won by Pallikal and Chinappa in 2014 was India's first ever squash medal at the Games.

Sadly, two of the children were drugged with "a significant amount" of diphenhydramine, which is an ingredient found in Benadryl. Police hadn't found the bodies of Devonte Hart and his adoptive sisters, 16-year-old Hannah Hart and 12-year-old Sierra.


It was Pallikal's second silver medal of the Games as she and Sourav Ghosal had lost in the mixed doubles final earlier. The final lasted 21 minutes and Chinappa and Pallikal, who were defending champions, couldn't match the intensity of their opponents, eventually losing 11-9, 11-8. I felt it could have changed the whole scenario of the match if those decisions were fair.

"It is great that we could be in the final, we had a great chance to win. It's harsh for us players". The New Zealanders played really well, we had a few bad calls. "I would say referees had to be hard in their approach otherwise it would have led to umpteen let points making the sport uninteresting", Sarah said.

Her partner Sathiyan, who hails from Chennai, won his third medal at the Games after previously winning gold in the men's team event and silver in men's doubles with Sharath Kamal.
