Indian men's hockey team loses bronze medal playoff

Aminat Adeniyi picked up Saturday's gold medal in women's wrestling; the three silver medals were won by Melvin Bibo in men's wrestling, Faith Obazuaye in women's TT6-10 singles (table tennis), women's 4X400 metres relay, while women's 4X100 metres relay won bronze.

The freak injury forced Vandana out of the field.

The 35-year-old actor, who essayed the title role in the sports drama "Mary Kom", took to Twitter to praise the boxer after she scored her first CWG medal, a gold, in the women's 45-48 kg category at the games being held in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

India captain Manpreet Singh was naturally very upset with the outcome. We played really bad this tournament and I really don't feel like going anywhere tonight.

British Cycling performance director, Stephen Park, said: "We've been pleased by the performances of British riders on the Gold Coast, which have once again demonstrated the talent, determination and strength in depth that we have within British cycling".

Coach Sjoerd Marijne was also disappointed. We give it to them too easily and that's been happening the whole tournament.

Sam Ward's penalty corner conversion led to England's first goal in the sixth minute. "I hope they (Indian players) don't ever want to experience this any more", he said.

India had started the match well as they pressed England high up the pitch and won back possession quickly which led them to create a few opportunities in the first quarter. With good man-to-man marking by England, making successful forays into the striking circle for the Indian forwards was hard to come by.

After several attempts, India's first breakthrough, however, came in the 26th minute when Mandeep Singh and Lalit Upadhyay worked in tandem to win the team's only PC of the match. A well-thought through variation between Rohidas and Varun fetched India a much-needed equalizer.

An Indian infringement gave away the first penalty corner (PC) of the match.

Ward gave England again the lead in the 43rd minute, employing a reverse-hand drive past P.R. Sreejesh after his initial drag-flick was blocked by runner Amit Rohidas.
