Key events

Kenya win the 9th-placed playoff against Ghana in the women’s hockey!

It may “only” be for ninth place, but that meant the world to Kenya, who equalised with three minutes left, and go on to defeat Ghana in sudden death in the shootout!

Women’s netball: In the playoff for 11th and 12th places, Trinidad and Tobago have defeated Barbados 63-31.

Scotland v Northern Ireland are up next, playing off for ninth place, from 11.30am.

Women’s hockey: Ghana and Kenya are drawing 2-2 in the fourth quarter of the match that will determine who gets the wooden spoon, by finishing 10th, and who comes 9th overall. Wales v South Africa is coming up at 11.15am UK time and they will battle for seventh spot.

Coming up this evening, England meet New Zealand in the first semi-final (6pm UK time) before Australia v India at 8.15pm UK.

It’s now full-time in that Ghana v Kenya match, at 2-2, and it’s going into a shootout after Kenya equalised with three minutes left! The dreaded penalty competition, as Barry Davies would have had it.

Hockey, table tennis and para table tennis and diving are also ongoing at the moment, if the live schedule on the official website is to be believed.

In the women’s pairs bowling, England increased their lead to five points momentarily, but India have just struck back with three simultaneous shots, and all of a sudden it’s 14-12.

Preamble

Good morning all and welcome to day eight. What’s occurring today?

Let’s do this …
