England humiliates India 6-0 to take bronze in women's hockey

India's Heena Sidhu, won gold in the women's 25 metre Pistol on Tuesday, wrote a post on her Instagram account to thank people involved in her victory at the 21st Commonwealth Games (CWG) in Gold Coast, Australia. Kristina O'Hara is beaten on a unanimous points decision by the legendary Mary Kom in 45 to 48 kg category. Mary Kom struck her at will, her right hooks being especially telling. Amongst her well-wishers is Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra who tweeted a congratulatory message for her "champion" Mary Kom.

This is her first Commonwealth Games medal and India 18th gold at the ongoing Games. While the women exceeded most expectations barring a meltdown in the final quarter of their bronze medal match against England, the men will have to reflect on what has been a disappointing outing in Gold Coast.

The Nottingham Wildcats star played a key role as England produced a shock semi-final win over Canada but could only watch as Australia steamrollered them 99-55 to take gold. In wrestling also India continued their good show with wrestlers Vinesh Phogat and Sumit clinching gold in their respective weight categories, while Rio Olympic bronze medallist Sakshi Malik and Somveer won the bronze medal. The heartbreak of missing the gold left her in tears during the medal ceremony. "He sometimes tells me to take it easy after competition but I can't help it", she said.

"I don't know how I pull it off sometimes", she had said, after her Asian Championship gold. "It was disturbing. I think it was intentional", he said after his defeat.

Earlier, Amit Panghal won silver medal after losing to England's Galal Yafai in men's 46-49kg final.

In badminton, shuttlers PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal will fight for gold in the women's singles event.

Bayern Munich 0 (2) - Sevilla 0 (1)
Vincenzo Montello's side have lost three of their last four games, picking up only seven points in their last seven games. A draw would be enough to see Bayern go through and it's (7.50) if the result ends that way in the Bavarian capital.

India could convert none of the five penalty corners and their defence line-up cracked under pressure in the final quarter to go out of the tournament on an embarrassing note.

It is now third straight time that Indian women's hockey team will return empty-handed from the Games as the last time it stood on podium was in 2006 when they won a silver.
