CWG, Final day - As it happened

Apologies. I have just been informed that the closing ceremony is scheduled to start only 19:00 IST. Join Ashwin Achal at about 18:45 hrs IST for the closing ceremony.

Right... that's about that for all the action from the 19th Commonwealth Games. Do not forget to join my colleague Ashwin Achal for the closing ceremony in about thirty minutes.

TIme for the presentation ceremony for the women's singles in badminton at the Siri Fort Sports Complex. Saina has had a brillinat year so far and she has now added a gold medal at the CWG to add to her credentials.

The crowd erupts as Saina is presented with the gold. And the national anthem of India resonates around the arena. That's the 38th time that has happened in this Games.

Saina beats Wong 19-21, 23-21, 21-13. She had to come back from the dead as Wong had a match point in the second set.

15:23 Another Wong unforced error has given the match, the gold and the second place in the medals table to India. Sensational stuff from Saina, who was down one set to nil.

15:21 Sensational stuff from Saina who plays a perfectly weighted long shot into the Malaysian's court to get eight match points.

15:20 A few unforced errors from Wong has gives Saina a huge 19-12 lead in the third.

15:17 Both players opting to leave a lot of shots hoping that the shuttle does not catch the paint. Saina leads 14-11 in the third.

15:11 As the match trundles past the hour mark, Saina reaches 10 points for the game with a smash which Wong has no answer to. 10-7 Saina.

15:10 Wong is back into it with two straight points of her own but Saina bludgeons a smash which goes past Wong. 9-6 to Saina in the third.

15:08 A run of five straight points by Saina is checked. But the Indian does lead 8-4.

15:06 Another exhausting rally ends when Wong just misses the line. Saina leads 6-3.

15:03 Both the players have been flirting with the lines and this time it is Saina's turn to find the line. 2-2 in the deciding set.

15:01 Incredible. One more unforced error from Saina gives the Malaysian a match point but Saina goes deep into her reserves to first save the match point before earning a set point. Moments later, the Malysian finds the net for a 23-21 loss. Saina is still in this. The commentator says "the dream lives on".

15:00 Saina plays with the line with an incredulous smash and gets the point to earn a set point. But she balloons the next return to tie the set at 20-20. Tension, anyone?

14:57 The Malaysian is on a little run here before the tieing the set at 18-18 apiece. Moments later, Saina produces a gem of a lob to take a lead.

14:52 Oh dear. Wong makes two unforced errors to hand Saina a three point (17-14) advantage.

14:50 Saina is making Wong work incredibly hard but the Malaysian is equal to the task. 15-13 in favour of Saina.

14:48 Saina was on an incredible run of 6 straight points but the Malaysian stops the rot. It's now 14-11 in favour of Saina

14:45 An absolutely sensational rally sees Wong finally end it when she kisses the sideline just to Saina right. There were at least 26 strokes in that rally. Moments later, Saina gets the tape to tie the second set 10-10.

14:40 Saina plants a brilliant down the line smash into the corner of Wong's right hand line to take an 8-6 lead.

14:38 It is now 4-4 in the second set but the Malaysian is interested in extending every rally.

14:36 Saina is looking a bit nervous and a bad error in judgement opens Wong's account in the second set.

14:34 Saina saves the next two set points but the Malaysian gets it right at the third time of asking. She takes the first set 21-19.

14:32 This is already turning into a humdinger. The Malaysian is leading 20-17 but there has some intense rallies and smashes.

14:30 The Malaysian has slowly but surely gained an upper hand in the first set. She's leading 18-15 in the first set.

14:28 Unbelievable rally culminates when Wong hits wide. Still 16-13 to the Malaysian.

14:25 Wong now leads 13-11 but had a 13-9 lead some moments back. It's been like a chess match so far with both players opting for the feelers rather than the aggressive smash or the dead drops.

14:20 That's more like it from Saina. Two smashes gets the Indian back in contention but the Malaysian still leads 9-8 in the first.

14:17 The Malaysian is quick to assert her authority with a classy smash and follows it up by an excellent point on the net to take a slender 6-4 lead in the first set.

14:12 Up and running in the women's final between Saina and Wong. The Indian currently leading 3-1 in the first set.

Before the women's badminton final starts (between Saina and Wong Mew Choo of Malaysia), I'm duty bound to give an update on the medals tally.

It's currently England with 37 golds and 58 silvers. India, also, on 37 golds and but just 27 silvers. So the mathematics is fairly simple. If Saina wins India will move upto 38 golds and second in the medals position. If she does not win the gold, England will remain in second position on account of them having one more silver medals.

Some update from the netball final between Australia and New Zealand. Australia leading the Kiwis 23-20.

13:56 Achanta has absolutely dominated Roy in the bronze medal match and has taken the match and the bronze medal 11-8,11-5,12-10,11-9

13:55 India does have the chance to overhaul England in the medals tally as Malaysia has beaten England in straight sets to claim gold in the men's double in badminton 21-19, 21-14.

The national anthem of Australia goes around the Major Dhyan Chand national stadium. And deservedly. They were stunning over the course of the last two weeks and dominated India from start to finish today.

13:30 England led Malaysia 19-18 at one stage but three unforced errors has handed Malaysia the first set 21-19.

13:27 It's neck and neck with England taking the odd lead. England runs up to a 16-13 lead before Malaysia claws their way back to win four of the next five points. It's now 17-17 in the first.

9:56: Slap shot from Wilson, a chance for England. They get a corner, a free hit as well now, taken very fast, free hit again, an illegal stick check, and a penalty corner.

And there's also the badminton finals coming up in a while. The Indian men shuttlers were beaten in the semis and played each other for bronze. >Kashyap won that encounter with Chetan Anand. Gold hopes now from Saina Nehwal in the singles and Jwala-Ashwini in the women's doubles.

9:42: Earlier in the day, Kenyan Kelai won the men's marathon. >Here's how he made history.

Hockey action has been out of the world during the games. India will take on Australia in under two hours. India are going to have to fire on all cycinders to make a dent on the Aussie armour. The >Australians drubbed New Zealand 6-2 in the semis, while India won by a whisker in a >shootout with England. But the Indians have for the first time assured themselves of a place in the podium in Commonwealth Hockey, and we can expect a blockbuster match in the >finals.

9:30: And what have we here - a battle for hockey bronze between New Zealand and England. The Kiwis leading 2-1, awarded another penalty corner

9:21: The Kenyans are ecstatic, an emotion quite familiar in athletics in these Commonwealth Games

9:20: The last few hundred metres, and for the first time, a Kenyan woman finishes on top, Mogake claims silver. Lisa Weitman battles humidity and some rough patches in the race, comes up from behind, and wins bronze

The final day is revving up with this dramatic race. There's the badminton finals within the hour, and and the hockey finals soon after.

9:17: Weitman, who started off as the strongest contender, clearly in bronze

9:16: Irene rounds the bend. Taking long, smooth strides, closing in on the Commonwealth title fast, in spite of that nasty fall she had early on in the race.

9:05: Weitman looks at her watch, she can see the two taller Kenyans, not too far in front, about 40 seconds behind.

India had a good haul yesterday, with four Golds, three of them in boxing and one in an incredible table tennis final.

8:59: Irene confers with Magake, takes the lead, bidding to be the first Kenyan woman to take the Commonwealth marathon

8:57: Weitman makes her move, gets past the Namibian, who looks quite tired, into the bronze position. But the Namibian puts up a fight, unlike her male counterpart Ryan, who disintegrated after Shelly crossed him

8:54: The Kenyans looking relaxed, keeping to the shade, but this race isn't over

8:52: Magake still in the lead, Aussie Lisa Weitman pumping hard, looks very likely that she'll have her place on the podium

8:50: The women now, Kenyans still in first and second places, an Australian looking strong at fourth, will she match her counterpart in the men's edition?

8:48: Less than a minute later, Shelly makes it through, takes his silver medal. And Amos Matui runs in for bronze.

8:47: Only 60 metres to the finish, and only Kelai in sight, and he does it. All alone on top, just the way he likes it

8:44: Shelly makes the lead real, matsui hangs back. Shelly rounds a bend, Matsui disappears. Brilliant tactical race by the Australian. He kept his own pace, inspite of being very far down at one stage.

8:43: And Shelly the Australian crosses Matsui for a real shot at silver. Matui looks the worse for wear. Kelai ahead by almost a minute.

8:40: John Kelai way, way ahead of the rest of the pack. This man is unbelievable.

8:36: But what have we here, an Australian in contention for bronze, footing it ahead of Ramadani

8:34: John Kelai is in the lead, and Amos Mtui is gaining. Ramadani not looking good, starting to struggle in third place

8:32: Ramadani falling back to a Kenyan, but he's not giving up easily, pumping his arms, trying to catch up

8:25: It's a team effort in the women's race, and Kenyans hoping to sweep up all three medals.

8:24: Kenyans proved too hot for the rest of the runners

8:22: John Kelai, Kenya, is leading and had detached from the rest of the runners. He is having an emphatic lead.

8.20: In men's marathon, once again Kenyans are in the lead.

A very good morning to you all. I'm Anand Venkateswaran, and it is my undistilled pleasure to take you through this last day, Day 11 of the 19th Commonwealth Games. Well, let's get cracking, because the day began well before we did. The marathon race is on, both men and women.

Despite many hurdles, the >Commonwealth Games was a great success with India winning 36 golds (till October 13, 2010). We can expect a few more from them today.
