Highlights on day 11 of the Commonwealth Games

Later, Indian boxer Vikas Krishan defeated Dieudonne Wilfried Seyi Ntsengue of Cameroon in the 75kg category final at the 21st Commonwealth Games (CWG) here on Saturday.

Prior to the CWG, midfielder Manpreet Singh had promised to bring home atleast a medal from the Games while ace drag-flicker Rupinder Pal Singh had stated that they are the best team that can offer Australia a challenge for the gold. He was a part of the gold medal-winning men's team and also won silver in the men's doubles event.

With a grand total of 66 medals, India finished with the third highest medal tally on Sunday in the 21st edition of the Commonwealth Games held at Gold Coast, Australia. "They basically punished the rider instead of the team and I don't think that was particularly fair".
