Live — Australia’s biggest Commonwealth Games test arrives on Thursday night (6pm AEST), where the gold medal contenders take on their closest Pool A rivals Jamaica.
The two nations have won all four of their matches in Birmingham, and it looks like it’s finally going to be a mouth-watering match.
Australia are already gold medal contenders, but their credentials will surely be tested by a Jamaican side who poses a real threat.
The Diamonds head into a tantalizing clash in Birmingham, with an injury cloud over midcourt Paige Hadley.

She missed out on a big 79-33 win against Wales and was left with only 15 minutes against South Africa with a heavy right calf tie.
She’s not ruled out yet against Jamaica, who are in the form of Janiere Fowler and Shamela Sterling.
Jamaica went on to an equally big win, beating Scotland 78-34 to enter the match.
“I’m really looking forward to Jamaica. They have some great players who have had success in Australia, so it’s going to take a whole team effort,” said Steph Wood before the game.
“We’ve seen some of them here in Birmingham, we’ve seen them play against South Africa, but we’ll spend some more time analyzing their performance on Wednesday.”
Thursday night’s game will be Australia’s final game in the pool stage before the semi-finals start on 6 August.
Pool B is led by England and New Zealand with eight points.
