One of the biggest hopes of gold medal in the Commonwealth Games 2022, the Indian badminton team has been disappointed. The defending CWG champions of the mixed team event lost to Malaysia 1-3 in the final. In this way, the chance of winning the second consecutive gold slipped from the hands of Team India. However, the Indian team will not return empty handed and they definitely put the silver medal in India’s bag. Star shuttler PV Sindhu won the only match from India.
Four years ago, in the 2018 Gold Coast Games, India won the gold medal of this event for the first time. Then India defeated Malaysia in the final. Once again both the teams were face to face, but this time the Indian team could not repeat that success. In a very tough match, Malaysia not only won the gold by defeating India, but also equaled the account of the previous defeat.
