India added the women's doubles silver to the two team gold medals from the table tennis arena after Manika Batra and Mouma Das failed to challenge the might of the Singaporean combination of Tianwei Feng and Mengyu Yu in the final.

In the first men's doubles semi-final, Sharath and Sathiyan won 3-1 (7-11, 11-5, 11-1, 11-3) against Singapore opponents Yew En Koen Pang and Shao Feng Ethan Poh to guarantee at least a silver medal.

Manika outplayed Mengyu Yu of Singapore 4-0 (11-7, 11-6, 11-2, 11-7) to clinch the gold medal.

Earlier in the day legendary Mary Kom bagged a gold medal in the 45-48kg women's boxing in her debut CWG campaign. Now India's medal tally has swelled to 59. Sumit Malik in the men's 125kg and Vinesh Phogat in the women's 50kg category won gold medals respectively.

They needed just 42 minutes to demolish the challenge of the Sri Lankans and get in the reckoning for India's first-ever men's doubles medal in badminton at the Games.

In the second semi-final, Manika Batra and Sathiyan Gnanasekaran lost to England's Liam Pitchford and Yo Tin Tim by a similar margin 8-11, 10-12, 11-5, 11-8, 13-15.
