The Commonwealth Games in Birmingham are underway – and you can scroll down for a full day-to-day schedule of the event; all schedules are BST and subject to change.

But first, let’s look at the must-see events of the Games.

The key Commonwealth events you just need to watch

Lawn Bowls: men’s singles final, Saturday 6 August

In his daily life, Nick Brett is a humble civil servant. But in his sporting life, Brett is – strangely – known as the Brad Pitt of bowls. At the 2020 Indoor World Championships, he threw arguably the most famous ball of all time with an outrageous shot that was good enough to go viral around the world.

Athletics: final of the men’s 1,500 meters, Saturday 6 August

Jake Wightman will race at the Commonwealth Games as Britain’s only reigning world champion after his shocking triumph at 1,500 meters. His father and coach Geoff will be back on commentary duty as the England-born but raised in Edinburgh Wightman is aiming for gold for Scotland.

Boxing: men’s super heavyweight final, Sunday 7th August

Delicious Orie says he wants to be better than Anthony Joshua. Born in Russia, he suffered from racism due to his Nigerian heritage, so the family moved to Britain when he was seven. The business graduate only started boxing at 18, but six years later he is aiming for the podium.

Netball: women’s final, Sunday 7th August

England’s Commonwealth title victory in 2018 was historic for breaking the duopoly held by Australia and New Zealand at the top of the global game. There is an end-era feeling on the hosts’ team in Birmingham with a number of veterans involved, and they will want to come out with a bang and win gold again.

Cricket: Women’s Final, Sunday 7th August

This is the first time that women’s cricket has participated in the Commonwealth Games. It would be something of a surprise if England and Australia didn’t contend for the final, having won 11 of the 12 World Cup titles between them, even though the Aussies will be favorites after a recent Ashes triumph.
