  • Aug 07, 2022 03:43 PM IST

    CWG 2022 badminton live: Lakshya 6-5 Teh in Game 2

    Teh looks a different player in this second game. Choosing to play more dynamically than he did the last time, where he decided to go all power and Lakshya just defended and then attacked him to the ground. Teh took a 3-1 lead before Lakshya fought back and he currently has a one-point lead.

  • Aug 07, 2022 03:36 PM IST

    CWG 2022 badminton semis live: Lakshya wins 1st game 21-10

    CWG badminton live: SINDHU ASSURED OF A MEDAL!

    An emphatic body smash to finish the match and Sindhu is through to a second consecutive CWG final! Quite an extraordinary win this from the Indian former world champion. She is clearly managing an injury and yet almost managed to move like she is perfectly fine towards the end of that second game. What will be the aftermath of that, we will wait and see later but for now, it’s kudos to Sindhu for this effort. She now has a chance to win a third consecutive CWG medal and her first gold at this event.

  • Aug 07, 2022 02:53 PM IST

    Commonwealth Games badminton semis: Sindhu 7-8 Yeo in Game 2

    The momentum is going back and forth in this match. Sindhu’s run of points ends when she actually sends a service long, not something we see quite often from her. Yeo then wins the next point when the shuttle seems to almost crawl over the net.

  • Aug 07, 2022 02:41 PM IST

    CWG 2022 badminton semis live: Sindhu wins 1st game 21-19

    Once again, it is the errors that cost Yeo the game. She saves two game points by making Sindhu move around and the Indian clearly can’t handle that today. These are worrying signs indeed, regardless of the outcome of this match. Sindhu takes the game after Yeo found the net. 

  • Aug 07, 2022 02:38 PM IST

    CWG badminton live: Sindhu 19-16 Yeo in Game 1

  • Aug 07, 2022 02:29 PM IST

    CWG badminton semis live: Sindhu 9-9 Yeo in Game 1

    Sindhu still moving gingerly but she seems to have found a bit more fluidity, certainly getting her placement of shots right and stretching the Singaporean into making mistakes. That helps her level things up.

    Commonwealth Games badminton semis: Sindhu 6-9 Yeo in Game 1

    This is quite stunning, Sindhu goes on to lose five consecutive points, hitting a back hand drop shot wide. She finally breaks the run in the next rally but Yeo makes it 9-5 with a cross court slice that Sindhu just not anywhere close to it. The Indian is not moving the way she normally does. 

  • Aug 07, 2022 02:26 PM IST

    CWG badminton semis live: Sindhu trailing 4-6

    Sindhu wins the first couple of points in a straightforward way, with Yeo wasting a review for some reason for an outside call off the second point. But Sindhu then seems reluctant to push off her left leg, remember that strapping on her Achilles’, and loses her first point. Yeo fights back to lead 5-4 when Sindhu ended up hitting a rather straightforward low smash into the net. A quick exchange followed with Sindhu falling two points behing after finding the net again. 

  • Aug 07, 2022 02:23 PM IST

    CWG badminton live: Sindhu on court

    The Indian double Olympic medallist has heavy strapping on her left Achilles’ which was not there last evening. Wonder if that will be a cause for concern. She serves to start the match.

    Like Satwik and Chirag, Gayatri Gopichand and Treesa Jolly had faced their opponents for the day during the mixed team event and they fell to a pretty convincing defeat. They would be hoping to find a different gear today but the fact remains that a win for them would be regarded as an upset.
