The Commonwelath Games kicks off today, and there’s plenty of lawn bowls action to keep us entertained on day one.

Session times – UK time: 8:30am, 11:30am, 3pm, 6pm, Australia (AEST): 5:30pm, 8:30pm, 12am, 3am

Pick of the games: Mens Pairs, New Zealand v Canada

Ryan Bester and John Bezar face Shannon McIlroy and Tony Grantham in the fourth session – should be a close game between two teams who will fancy themselves to bring a medal home. Tune in from 6pm UK time or 3am Australian time.
