The overall satisfied performance of Indian players in the Commonwealth Games. It is wonderful to beat Malaysia in the team event and win the gold. In my view, this tournament is owned by Ashwini. Sathivik-Ashwini won the team event with a 1-0 victory over India and then inspired Srikanth to play against Lee Chong Wei. Saina’s performance improved. First of all, it is noteworthy that the team plays well in personal events and then Saina.
