India surpasses New Zealand in medal tally

Although the final rankings are still subject to change and India still expects some more gold medals, India hopes to improve its overall position in the table.

India briefly overtook New Zealand at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham on Sunday. India is currently in fifth place in the table. Aside from 17 gold medals, India has bagged 13 silver and 19 bronze medals, taking their overall medal tally to 49. New Zealand, on the other hand, has 18 gold medals, 12 silver and 17 bronze medals, for a total of 47 medals and a fifth place finish.

But for a short while, India’s 17 golds helped them overtake New Zealand, who also had 17 golds, before the Kiwis added another gold to their tally.

Although the final rankings are still subject to change and India still expects some more gold medals, India hopes to improve its overall position in the table.
