Vijay Kumar Yadav also won bronze in men's kg judo after beating Cyprus' Petros Christodoulides. Also, two other judokas will fight for the bronze medal. In hockey, India have drawn 4-4 against England in a Men's Pool B hockey match. It has been a great day for India so far as the country found unlikely heroes. The Indian lawn bowls team made history on Monday as it defeated New Zealand in the women's four semi-final to assure themselves of at least a silver medal. Boxers Amit Panghal (flyweight) and Hussam Uddin Mohammed (featherweight) have entered the quarter-finals. In weightlifting, Ajay Singh finished fourth in men's 81kg. Gymnast Pranati Nayak finished fifth in women's vault final. In squash, Saurav Ghosal beat Scotland's Greg Lobban to reach men's singles semi-finals, however, Joshna Chinappa went down to Canada's Hollie Naughton in women's singles quarterfinals.

India have so far won eight medals (three gold, three silver and two bronze) in CWG 2022.
