Hockey comes to a close

New Zealand will take on Australia in the women's gold medal match. The Hockeyroos have won the past three Games gold medals - will they continue their gold run or will New Zealand knock them off the top of the podium? England will meet India in the women's bronze medal match. It's the same match-ups in the men's competition, with Australia and New Zealand in the gold medal match and England and India playing for the bronze.

Basketball showdown 

Last time Basketball was played at the Commonwealth Games was in Melbourne in 2006, on that occasion Australia swept the medals, winning the men's and women's gold. 

Tonight the women's final will feature Australia and England. Canada were one of the favourites heading into GC2018, but were beaten by England in the semifinals in an upset 65-53 victory and Australia proved too good for the New Zealand Tall Ferns in the other semifinal. 

In the men's competition, Australia will face Scotland in the first semifinal, followed by New Zealand and Canada.

With so many medals up for grabs, how can we choose?

But the drama and tension of the men’s and women’s 4 x 100m and 4 x 400m relays will be a highlight. Jamaica, Botswana and Trinidad and Tobago will be the teams to beat.
