GOLD COAST: Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal defeated her opponent P V Sindhu by straight games to clinch the women's singles title in the badminton competition at the 21st Commonwealth Games here on Sunday.

In a high-octane clash between the two Indian medalists, Saina took charge of the game in the last lap, sealing a 21-18, 23-21 victory in the all-Indian finals on the last day of the Games.

In the first game, Saina maintained a steady lead at 18-14. However, Sindhu bounced back with three back-to-back points to take her score to 18. Saina then comfortably stole the game 21-18.

The second game saw a neck-to-neck competition between the two opponents, with thrilling rallies, taking the game to 20 all. However, Saina's smash sealed her two-set victory and the title.

With Saina clinching Gold, 22-year-old Sindhu bagged Silver; thus, taking India's total in the Games to 62, including 26 gold, 17 silver and 19 bronze medals.
