    A first for cricket

    For the first time in the history of the Commonwealth Games, women’s cricket will take centre stage, marking the return of one of the favoured sports of many participating nations.


    efootball and Rocket League


    No event underlines the Commonwealth Games’ push for modernisation quite like the inaugural Commonwealth esports championships, which will be held at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham. The games will include efootball, Dota 2 and Rocket League, and they will be split into open and women’s categories. There will additionally be a Commonwealth esports forum, bringing together various figures within the industry.

    I watched the opening ceremony and nearly started a thread on here, but the pandering to the Lgbt5G brigade was over the top imho, so fvck it!

    Besides who gives a fvck about the Great British Commonwealth anymore?

    The Aussie female athletes looked the fittest with their cream skirts

    The GB ladies cycling team are quite eye catching, albeit they only managed Bronze in the pursuit.

    Decent match between India and Australia.

    It's noticeable though that the women don't punish the bad ball quite as consistently.

    In the end Aus won by three runs.

    Ah, and Boris Johnson happily states that the UK has consistently outperformed France and Germany at the Commonwealth Games . . . Why allow the buffon to continue making Britain look the fool.

    Kiwi news is full of how brilliantly New Zealand is doing . . . impressive for a tiny place, really.

    I've never actually been to Birmingham ... am I missing something, a jigsaw piece of my life not in place?

    Apologies to all the Brummies out there
