India have won 25 gold, 16 silver and 18 bronze medals at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, leaving them third in the overall tally.

The Commonwealth Games 2018 got under way on April 4, with the opening ceremony kicking off 11 eventful days of competition across 18 different sports. Australia are staging the Games for a fifth time, with Gold Coast seeing off competition from Hambantota in Sri Lanka to be named as the host venue.

At the previous Commonwealth Games in Glasgow the Indian medal tally stood at 64 – 15 gold, 30 silver and 19 bronze and the 218-strong contingent would be expected to either better it or ensure that the final count hovers close to the previous haul.

The major burden of expectations would once again be on shooters, boxers, shuttlers and wrestlers -- all of whom have been in good form going into the Games. The two hockey teams would also be expected to at least be on the podium if not on top.

The likes of P V Sindhu, Jitu Rai, Saina Nehwal, M C Mary Kom, Sushil Kumar and Vinesh Phogat are being considered medal certainties.

The dark horses would include the gymnasts and the table tennis players, who might just throw up a few surprises to finish among the medals.

The Games will have its fair share of international stars in the likes of Jamaican sprinter Yohann Blake, world champion hurdler Sally Pearson, British diver Tom Daley and India’s very own Mary Kom and South Africa’s Caster Semenya among others.

But it remains to be seen whether Gold Coast is in a mood to be dazzled by them.
