P.V. Sindhu has been named the flagbearer of the Indian contingent for the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games 2022.

Ace India shuttler P.V. Sindhu has been named the flagbearer of the Indian contingent for the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games 2022.

Sindhu is a two-time Olympic-medallist and has also won a bronze and a silver at the Commonwealth Games in the women’s singles event. At 2018 Gold Coast, Sindhu was a part of the Indian mixed team that clinched the gold.

The 27-year-old was named the flagbearer after Tokyo Olympics gold medallist Neeraj Chopra pulled out of CWG 2022 with a groin strain on Tuesday, following his silver medal-winning effort at the World Championships two days earlier.

“Needless to say, I am hurt about not being able to defend my title and missing out on another opportunity to represent the nation. I am especially disappointed about losing out on the opportunity to be Team India’s flag bearer at the opening ceremony, an honour was looking forward to having in a few day’s time,” Chopra had written in a social media post.
