Reigning national champion Sreeja Akula and Manika Batra entered the women's singles prequarterfinals with contrasting wins in the table tennis event of the Commonwealth Games on Thursday. Sreeja beat Malaysia's Karen Lyne 12-10, 12-10, 4-11, 11-8, 11-8 in a round of 32 contest.
Ghosal-Pallikal power into mixed doubles quarterfinals
Top seeds Dipika Pallikal and Saurav Ghosal sailed into the mixed doubles quarterfinals with a clinical 11-8, 11-4 win over the Wales pair of Emily Whitlock and Pater Creed at the Commonwealth Games on Thursday.
Many late goals in that quarter. England lead 7-1 at the end of Q3. The hosts need 8 goals in Q4 without conceding, have taken their goalkeeper off against 10-men Canada.
The record for most goals scored by a top goal scorer at the Commonwealth Games is held by South Africa's Greg Nicol (Current New Zealand men's team coach) - 14 Goals - can Harmanpreet break his record?
