The kookaburra are Commonwealth Games gold medalists again, beating India 7-0 to maintain their absurd streak at the event.

It means the Aussies haven’t lost at the Commonwealth Games since 1998, winning gold for the seventh time in seven attempts.

The win took Australia’s gold tally in Birmingham to a stunning 67 – and a 1001st in history.
