With 90 athletes and 45 officials, Nigeria is flying her flag high at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia - Gold Coast 2018.

The opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games took place in a packed Carrara Stadium on the Gold Coast, the host city for the Commonwealth Games.

Athletes who get gold medals for Nigeria will get $5,000 each.

At stumps on day two, Australia were all at sea at 110/6, still a massive 378 behind South Africa in their first innings. It is an innings that will mean a lot to Bavuma, who has had to be patient for another chance to represent his country.

The ceremony drew strongly on Aboriginal, Indigenous and First Nations cultures-symbolic of the Games' overarching commitment to reconciliation and inclusivity through sport.

The Indian contingent, this time, will have 220 athletes participating in the multi-nation event, that will end on April 15. The Rio Olympics silver medallist carried the tri-colour at the head of the Indian contingent, which also included fellow badminton stars H.S. Pranoy and Kidambi Srikanth. The Badminton team is slated to open its campaign against the Sri Lankan team on Thursday.

Over 6,500 athletes from 71 Commonwealth countries and territories will compete for 275 gold medals at 2018 Gold Coast Games.
