The Indian unit will start operating on the sixth day of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games (CWG) 2022 on Wednesday 3 August 2022. The CWG has been a happy hunting ground for the largest country in the Commonwealth. Among the top five since the 2002 edition, India relied a lot on the shot dropped from the Birmingham Games programme. Moving forward to the 2022 Birmingham Games, they will aim to at least match their 66 medals from the previous Gold Coast edition. India finished third on the Gold Coast, with as many as 26 gold, 20 silver and 20 bronze medals at Kitty.
