After 10 days of competition in Delhi it's come down to the final day and surprise surprise Australia stand in the way of New Zealand winning a sixth gold medal.

The Silver Ferns close New Zealand's involvement at the Commonwealth Games when they take on their old rivals later tonight, a win would equal the amount of gold medals won in Melbourne four years ago.

A loss would mean a 23rd silver medal for New Zealand, beating the record of 22 received at the Auckland Games 60 years ago.

Highlights from day 10:

Golden delight for women's squash pairing
The New Zealand squash team of Jaclyn Hawkes and Joelle King boosted the country's Commonwealth Games gold tally to four last night with victory in the women's doubles.

Kiwi shooting duo keep gold following protest
"Mentally frazzled" fullbore shooting pair Mike Collings and John Snowden have won Commonwealth Games gold, reward for surviving five days in sweltering heat, malfunctioning targets and protests.

Black Sticks fall just short of gold
New Zealand have closed the gap with Australia but need more depth, according to Black Sticks women's coach Mark Hager.

Silver Ferns never tire of the old enemy
Silver Ferns captain Casey Williams seemed slightly bemused by the question. "Don't you ever get sick of playing Australia," asked an Australian accent.
