Commonwealth Games 2018: When and where to watch mega event at Gold Coast, coverage on TV and live streaming

The 21st Commonwealth Games is set to begin on 4 April at Gold Coast, Australia. The Games kicks off with the opening ceremony where the Indian contingent will be led by ace shuttler PV Sindhu, the assigned flag bearer.

India have had an unfortunate start in this edition of the CWG. It started with an Indian paddler dropped from the contingent after being charged with rape and then there was the now usual dance of not sending the entries on time and finally, the presence of needles outside the Indian accommodation.

With the 'no-needle' policy of CWG being violated, the Indian boxers were under investigation for doping charges. However, they received clean chit from the authorities and the Indian boxing team's doctor was let off with a reprimand.

Now, it is time to put all these behind and concentrate on the marquee event that is set to begin with the opening ceremony on Wednesday.
