The Indian contingents included Moin Ejaz, Ketan Goyal, Abhishek Yadav, Shubham Goli, and Vishal Vernekar. 

Our guys had a clear victory in Game 1 but New Zealand players gave a tough game in the mid-game. However, gladly, Moin and the team fared well in the second game and secured the bronze medal.

Now, even though the victory is not officially counted in the medal count, the bronze medal in the Commonwealth is still praiseworthy. We congratulate Team India!

“This win symbolises the amount of hard work the team has put in over the years and we dedicate this win to our country. Winning a medal at the Commonwealth was a dream for us and we're super proud as a team. We were very much aware before leaving for Birmingham that the tournament was going to be tough. Keeping in mind the intensity and level of the game on such an international platform, each and every team member gave their best shot during the practice sessions. We have invested a lot of time in preparing the strategies and improving our gameplay, which finally culminated in this win. We would like to thank the Esports Federation of India (ESFI) and Lokesh Suji Sir for their continuous support, motivation & encouragement. We hope that this win will encourage more tournaments around DOTA 2 and other esports titles, which will help the ecosystem as a whole to grow in our country," said an elated Indian DOTA 2 skipper Moin Ejaz after winning the bronze medal.
