Two semifinals and possibly to gold medal matches for the New Zealand sevens teams. The New Zealand women face England after cruising through pool play - scoring 18 tries and conceding just one. New Zealand are expected to win the semifinal and face Australia in a re-match of the Rio Olympics final. In the men's competition, the All Blacks sevens will also face England in the semifinals.

Squash, 2pm

Joelle King and Amanda Landers-Murphy face Indian pair Joshna Chinappa and Dipika Pallikal Karthik in the women's doubles gold medal match. King will capture her third medal of the Games - victory will mean her second gold while defeat will mean a nice sweep a gold, a silver and a bronze.

Basketball, from 11am

The Tall Blacks need to pick themselves up from a shocking performance in their semifinal defeat against Canada yesterday if they want to leave the Gold Coast with a medal. They face Scotland in the bronze medal game. The Scots beat England and India in pool play and Nigeria in the quarter-finals before a heavy defeat to Australia in the semifinals.

Netball, from 1pm

Another team who need to get up for a bronze game - the Silver Ferns. They were handily beaten by hosts Australia yesterday and today face Jamaica - a side they have lost to twice this year. A defeat would mean the first time at the Commonwealth Games that the Ferns will leave empty-handed.
