Indians, silver medalists in the 2006 Melbourne Games, finished with seven points from their four Pool A matches, the same as South Africa, but lost out on goal difference.

On the sixth day of competitions at the C'wealth Games, the highlight of India's show, however, was Gagan Narang's fourth Gold of the Games. The shooter emerged victorious in the 50 metre rifle 3 position shooting event on Saturday afternoon. Gagan also created a new Games record scoring 1262.2 points. The Silver in the event went to Jonathan Hemund of Scotland and Bronze to James Heckle of England.

The first medal of the day for India came in Athletics with Harminder Singh securing bronze in 20 Kilometer Men's walk race on Saturday morning. Australia won the Gold and Silver in this event. A jubilant Harminder expressed happiness on his achievement.

In Wrestling, India's Yogeshwar Dutt won the Gold in the 60 Kilogram freestyle event, beating Canada's James Mancini.

The fourth Gold for the country came through Narsingh Pancham Yadav in the 74 kg category wrestling event. Yadav defeated South Africa's Richard Brain Addinall.

In Squash, India's Harvinder Paul Sandhu and Sandeep Jhangda defeated Uganda 8-11,11-4,11-3 to advance to the sixth round.

In Tennis, however, the biggest disappointment for Indian tennis lovers was Sania Mirza missing her Gold Medal, as she failed to win in the women's singles final match against Australia's Anastasia Rodionova.

In a spirited match, Anastasia defeated Sania by 6-3, 2-6, 7-6 and won the Gold medal for Australia.

Sania won the Silver medal.

The day had started, with 32 gold medals up for grabs in Archery, shooting, Wrestling, weightlifting and Tennis events. India's quest for more medals is being watched with keen anticipation.

Hosts India are hoping for Gold medals in Weightlifting events.

Two Golds will be decided in 94 kilogram men's and 75 kilogram women's categories. India are looking for a good show from lifters Gita Rani, Monika Laishram Devi and Srishti Singh in women's category.
