Fifteen gold medals are up for grabs on day two in Delhi with athletes from the four home nations bidding to win their first titles of the Games.

England's swimming world champion Liam Tancock will hope to upgrade his silver medal from Melbourne in 2006 in the men's 50m backstroke final at 1130 BST.

Scotland's Robbie Renwick and defending Commonwealth champion Ross Davenport compete in the men's 200m freestyle.

Wales' Geraint Thomas will contest the 1,000m Time Trial final at 0940 BST.

The Olympic Team Pursuit champion cyclist is likely to face a stiff challenge from young Australian star Jack Bobridge while defending champion Anna Meares of Australia will be the favourite to retain her women's title in the absence of Victoria Pendleton.

Coverage of the cycling on BBC2 runs from 0800-1100 BST while the swimming finals are on BBC1 from 1100-1300 BST and will also be shown live on the BBC Sport website for UK users only.

After the silver medal heroics of their men's team, England's women gymnasts will be looking to land on the podium in the artistic team final which runs from 1200-1400 BST.

The silver medal winners in 2006 look set to do battle with Australia, who beat them to the gold medal in Melbourne four years ago.

They must do so without Beth Tweddle, who is preparing to compete at the World Championships in Rotterdam, but there is a lot of depth in British gymnastics and Imogen Cairns has recovered from serious injury to lead the English challenge.

In the pool, Australian superstar Leisel Jones - who won four gold medals in 2006 - has already lost out in her bid to win eight golds in Delhi.

But she will be looking for another chance to prove her ascendancy in the women's 50m breaststroke, one of five swimming finals taking place on Tuesday.

England's light welterweight Bradley Saunders is one of the biggest boxing names competing in Delhi and he takes on Grenada's Dominic Boatswain in his opening bout and overall there will be action in 15 different sports.

Wrestling gets under way, as does shooting, while in the women's hockey England take on Wales while Scotland will hope to replicate their form against India when they take on South Africa.

Scotland's men face the daunting task of taking on Pakistan.
