Silver for England in men's time trial

In the deciding game Manika playing her second match of the finals came out all guns blazing and defeated Yihan Zhou 11-7 11-4 11-7 to guide her team to glory

India swept the table tennis team events at the 21st Commonwealth Games after the men's team clinched gold with an emphatic win over Nigeria.

Gao Ning lost 11-13, 5-11, 9-11 to Paul Drinkhall, while Ethan Poh lost 9-11, 7-11, 11-7, 3-11 to Liam Pitchford.

"It was a very hard game".

"I was expecting a fight from the Fijian lifter but it was the English girl who gave a good fight", said Punam.

"I have learnt some things; when I get home, I will need to inform my coach on what we need to put more in our training. Luckily, it worked out in my favour", Sharath told mid-day yesterday from Australia. Men's team also didn't stay too far behind as they beat Nigeria in the final to present India its ninth gold in the Games.

The paddler felt the youngsters in the team rose to the occasion to help the country register this memorable feat. They dominated their opponents in the final.

Simmons finished the first half with 13 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists. "They've been playing some good ball". The Cavaliers were playing back-to-back having beaten the Washington Wizards in Cleveland 119-115 Thursday.

Caster Semenya bids to win gold in the 1,500 meters on the Commonwealth Games track on Tuesday in the first half of a potential middle-distance double. She won bronze in the 100-meter freestyle Monday, tying a 52-year-old Canadian women's record with her seventh medal of the games. "I believe if I get my race right, I will be fine".

"The approach we take to the 2019 Pan American Games and the 2020 Olympic Games will not be the same as the approach we took to this year's Commonwealth Games".

The South African runner has had a career resurgence over recent seasons, including last year's world championships where she won the 800 and took bronze in the 1,500. What makes the win really impressive is that this was the Singapore women's team's first loss in the Commonwealth Games since the event was introduced in 2002.

With individual and doubles medals still on offer, Sharath, now, wants to turn his focus on upcoming matches. Table Tennis has not exactly been a hunting ground for India but the two teams proved their mettle with their dedicated and no-nonsense approach. He had won the men's team event in 2006 Commonwealth Games held in Melbourne, Australia.

Earlier on Day 5, in the overall medals tally, India jumped to third spot with 10 gold, four silver and five bronze medals after another fruitful day across sports, which fetched three gold, two silver and a bronze.
