But first, let’s look at the remaining mandatory events.

Top Commonwealth Events You Simply Must Watch

Lawn Bowls: Men’s Singles Final, Saturday, August 6

In his everyday life, Nick Brett is a humble civil servant. But in his sporting life, Brett is – somewhat bizarrely – known as the Brad Pitt of the pitch. At the 2020 World Indoor Championships, he threw the most famous bowl of all time with an outrageous shot that went so good it went viral across the world.

Athletics: Men’s 1500m final, Saturday, August 6

Jake Wightman will run at the Commonwealth Games as Britain’s only world champion after his astonishing triumph in the 1500m. His father and coach Geoff will once again be a commentator as Wightman, born in England but raised in Edinburgh, is aiming for the gold for Scotland.

Boxing: Men’s Super Heavyweight Final, Sunday, August 7

Delicious Orie says she wants to be better than Anthony Joshua. Born in Russia, he suffered racism due to his Nigerian heritage, so the family moved to Britain when he was seven. The economics graduate didn’t start boxing until he was 18, but six years later he’s aiming for the podium.

Netball: Women’s Final, Sunday, August 7

England’s 2018 Commonwealth title win was historic in breaking the duopoly held by Australia and New Zealand at the top of the global game. There’s an end-of-the-era feel about the hosts’ team in Birmingham with several veterans involved, and they’ll want to go out with a bang winning the gold again.

Cricket: Women’s Final, Sunday 7 August

This is the first time that women’s cricket has appeared at the Commonwealth Games. It would be a surprise if England and Australia did not contest the final, having won 11 of their 12 World Cup titles between them, although the Australians are favorites after a recent sweeping victory for the Ashes.
