India ended its Commonwealth Games 2022 campaign in Birmingham with 61 medals, which included 22 Gold, 16 Silver and 23 Bronze Medals.

On the final day, India won four golds, one silver and one bronze medal, with P. V. Sindhu, Lakshya Sen, the pair of Satwik Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty, and the evergreen Sharath Kamal, all winning their respective finals.

However, one event that was absent at the Games was shooting, a sport India has dominated over the years, with the last edition of the Games having 16 medallists from India (seven gold, four silver, five bronze).
