India ended their 2022 Commonwealth Games campaign by winning six medals, including four gold, on the final day in Birmingham.

They finished fourth on the table behind Australia, England and Canada. In total, India won 61 medals - 22 gold, 16 silver and 23 bronze.

The day started with PV Sindhu's women's singles final against Michelle Li of Canada. The world number seven from India outplayed her 13th ranked opponent 21-15, 21-13 in front of a packed crowd at the NEC arena to win the gold medal.

Next in action was Lakshya Sen in the men's singles final. He lost the opening game but came back well to clinch the next two as defeated the world number 42 from Malaysia 19-21, 21-9, 21-16.

The doubles pair of Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy won the country's third gold in badminton with a straight game 21-15, 21-13 victory over England's Ben Lane and Sean Mendy.

India finished a fantastic badminton campaign with three gold, one silver and two bronze.

In table tennis, G Sathiyan bagged his maiden CWG singles medal as he won bronze, beating home-favourite Paul Drinkhall 4-3 (11-9, 11-3, 11-5, 8-11, 9-11, 10-12, and 11-9).

Sharath Kamal capped his best ever performance at the Commonwealth Games by winning the men's singles gold on Monday. After losing the first game that he should have closed, Sharath beat Liam Pitchford of England 11-13, 11-7, 11-2, 11-6, 11-8.

Sharath, who had first won the singles gold back in 2006, had already claimed two golds in CWG 2022 in the team and mixed doubles event alongside Sreeja Akula. Sathiyan and Sharath also claimed the silver medal in the men's doubles event.

Sharath increased his tally to a staggering 13 medals across five CWG appearances.

In hockey, the Indian men's team couldn't break the streak of Australia as they lost the gold medal match 7-0. After missing out on the podium last time, India bagged the silver this time, but it was a disappointing end. Australia dominated India right from the start and kept scoring goals at regular intervals. This is Australia's seventh gold medal in CWG as they finished on top in all the editions since the sport made its debut in 1998.
