Shetty and the rest of Team India will now hope to translate this confidence into some medals from the individual competition, which gets under way on Tuesday.

Isle of Man's Tim Kneale won his country's first medal at this year's Games by taking silver while Ankur Mittal continued India's medal rush at the shooting range by winning the bronze.

Bangladesh's Shakil Ahmed took the silver while Indian Om Mitharval finished third.

The silver medal went to Samoa's Don Opeloge, who lifted 331 kg - three more than Malaysian bronze medallist Muhamad Fazrul Azrie Mohdad.

Venkat Rahul, the 21-year-old from Andhra Pradesh, lifted a total of 338 kg - 151 kg in snatch and 187 in clean and jerk - to bring maiden gold medal for India in this weight category.

Indian boxer Amit Panghal has ensured yet another medal for India after defeating Aqeel Ahmed of Scotland 4:1 in the quarter-finals.

It was mother of all upsets as prior to this final, the Singapore women's team had never lost in the Commonwealth Games since the sport was inducted in the program way back in 2002. Leading the way was the experienced Achanta Sharath Kamal who beat Bode Abiodun 4-11, 11-5, 11-4, 11-9, before the top-ranked Indian paddler Sathiyan Gyanasekaran dispatched Segun Toriola 10-12, 11-3, 11-3, 11-4 to put India up 2-0. Both goals for India came via Harmanpreet Singh.

Yinka Ajayi qualified for the semi-final of the women's 400m event on Sunday.

The Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive David Grevemberg stressed the eight athletes have not broken the law and it is for Team Cameroon to look into the matter.

Shooters Jitu Rai and Om Mitherval will be looking to add to India's medal tally in the men's 50-metre pistol event. She picked up pace in the final three minutes but Mary Kom drew from her own wealth of experience to thwart her.

Mouma Das entered the fray next, teaming up with Patkar to take on the pairing of Yu and Yihan Zhou.

On the other hand, Maitreyee's compatriot Vaishnavi's dreams of reaching the semi-finals are nearly over after losing 0-3 to Nigerian Obazuaye.
