If you are not following the Commonwealth Games, here[^] is the latest medals tally.
India have done ok.
They should have done better.
One thing that bothers me is that most countries have approximately equal gold and silver counts e.g. 11 gold and 12 silver.
India, however, have twice as many silver as gold - cases of missed opportunities.
Just yesterday, we won 6-7 silver in wrestling but could not convert any of them into a gold.
I have been watching it closely.. A day before we won 3 Gold in the same arena.. It must have been one odd day for wrestling..
We did win lot of bronze medals in shooting..and just a few rounds before Our players were heading the table.. Its probably they were not able to hold their nerve.!
Currently I am going training for a marathon - strength training and cardio. I can now really appreciate the hardwork that Athletes have to go through in a competitive sport such as weight lifting/running/cycling. Any achievement is actually a good achievement given the circumstances for India. It is very easy to say that they should have done better but the amount of hard work and sacrifice which each Athlete has to put is phenomenal.
What a lame display of batting. Pathetic to say the lease. But didn't even fight. Even the team selection was also having the issue. Except Rahane and Vijay to some extent no one played well.
We lost a golden chance of winning the series abroad.
That will be a big problem for us. I never thought that he would be having that much of an impact. Anyway it is not the bowling which is the major challenge. Batting seems to be biiger issue. We should include Ashwin and Gambhir into the squal to get it better.
He proved to be a failure. Infact apart from his debut inning he doesn't have much to display. He should have been replaced in third match itself but Dhoni's antipathy towards Gambhir is what shielding him.
