    Well that is just sad. Aakarshi Kashyap in the end wins 22-20, 8-1 after Mahoor Shahzad goes down with an ankle injury. She looks to be ina  world of pain and medical help comes on court to help her off it. After some lengthy discussions it looks like she tries to actually pick up the racket and continue playing. But she can hardly walk and concedes the match. Shahzad set that court on fire in the first game but Aakarshi came out all guns blazing in the second. The Pakistani was the underdog but she gave quite  a match.

    Well, well, well, Canada score again just after England score their 10th. This match is filled with a number penalty corners, all going England's way and this can go on for a long while yet. But England have to score one more since Canada have reduced that deficit.

    CWG 2022: Hockey - England 4-1 Canada in Q2

    Well it all came to the boil towards the end of the second quarter and Canada's Balraj Panesar lost his cool completely. He grabbed an England player by the neck and was shown a red card for that. It is not often that we see red cards in modern day hockey. This changes a lot of thing and England might just go and score 11 from here in the 2nd half. England also got two yellow cards which means they will actually start the second half with one man less. 

  • Aug 04, 2022 09:02 PM IST

    Commonwealth Games Live: Hockey - England 4-1 Canada in Q2

    Well Canada had equalised in the first quarter but England have not let that deflate them. A penalty stroke with just over 6 mins left on the clock for the first half hooter and they go 4-1 with that. They  have to score 11 more now over the course of the rest of the matches to go past India, which seems pretty improbable right now.

    Commonwealth Games Live: Hockey - India keep an eye on England vs Canada

    Well India's chances of winning top of the group completely depends upon England's victory margin against Canada. They have to win by at least 14 goals, remember, to pip India and well, they have knocked one goal off that deficit in the first 60 seconds itself. England score from what was their first real attack.

Agnes seem to tire towards the end and the referee ended up giving him a 10-count towards the end of it. He wins the second round 4-1 as well, with that fifth judge from Sri Lanka somehow convinced that Ahlawat cannot win that round. 

  • Aug 04, 2022 08:06 PM IST

  • Aug 04, 2022 07:05 PM IST

    CWG 2022: Men's Hockey - India 2-0 Wales in Q2

    Another PC, another goal from Harmanpreet. Machine-like precision from him. He goes to the right of goal this time from a PC that India got soon after the first was scored. 

  • Aug 04, 2022 06:59 PM IST

    Commonwealth Games Live: Men's Hockey - India 1-0 Wales in Q2

    It is a penalty corner in the end that gives India the lead. The PC is held up after a rather lengthy break for referral, at the end of which the video umpire says there is no advice possible. Harmanpreet then threads a flick into the left corner of the goal. Not the usual thunderbolt flick from him but a more carefully placed one that blinds the goalie.

    CWG 2022: Men's Hockey - India vs Wales

    India need a big win here to keep their top spot in the group and avoid a semi-final against Australia. They currently have a nine-goal lead over second-placed England, who face Canada after this game.

    Commonwealth Games: Boxing - Jaismine takes the 2nd as well!

    It's only a 3-2 split this time. The New Zealander has a clear disadvantage in height but she tries to close down the distance with Jasmine choosing to dance away. She then decides to attack in the end, which is just as good because that is what may have got her that round. 

  • Aug 04, 2022 06:26 PM IST

    Commonwealth Games Live: Boxing - Jaismine takes the 1st round

    Jaismine has the longer reach and Garton does well to maintain her guard in the early part of the round. But the Indian lands a punch and then manages to get a few in. The bell goes just as the two boxers were amping the aggression. The judges though that those punches that she landed were good enough and gives the first round to Jaismine.
