India made a rousing start at the Commonwealth Games 2018 on Thursday, April 5 as weightlifters Mirabai Chanu won a gold and Gururaja Poojary a silver medal.

Chanu's Commonwealth Games record-breaking lifts and a personal best score of 196 (86 snatch and 110 clean and jerk) made the opening day memorable for Team India.

Indian badminton players also proved their dominance by demolishing Sri Lanka and Pakistan in Group A of the Mixed Team event.

PV Sindhu and HS Prannoy were rested for both the ties and the duo is expected to feature in the much-anticipated tie Friday, April 6 against European heavyweights Scotland.

Women's squash stars Joshna Chinappa and Dipika Pallikal Karthik progressed to the Round of 16 with a win each, while Vikram Malhotra was the lone survivor in the men's singles category as Saurav Ghosal and Harinder Pal Sandhu bowed out.

The focus will be on women's hockey team as they lost their first Pool A outing against Wales on Thursday. They will face Malaysia on Friday.
