Among the men, debutant Gaurav Solanki (52kg), world bronze-medallist Vikas Krishan (75kg) and Manish Kaushik (60 kg) made the semifinals to be assured of medals.

Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive David Grevemberg said his organisation was monitoring the situation but until the missing Cameroonians broke Australian law it was a matter for them and their team officials.

The first two left the athletes village on Sunday night, followed by three more on Monday before the last two went missing on Tuesday night. The number of girls playing in Australia - we have that experience now.

"These athletes are guests here in Australia".

Tracey Neville has urged her England netball team to use the historic victory over New Zealand to spur them to Commonwealth gold and allow the veteran Geva Mentor to retire happy, whenever that may be.

"The authorities are very disappointed with the deserters - some did not even compete", Molombe said. I believe they will be working on baton exchange although I would have preferred if it was done longer.

'Their team-mates informed us they had left. "We have no idea where they are".

"Qualifying is back in my hands, and I'll come back tomorrow and try and get that win I need".

Coach Danny Kerry said: "New Zealand are a very good side and we are looking forward to a cracking game".
