Zealand bowled to bronze in
the Women's Pairs.

Sisterly love shone out at the State Lawn Bowls Centre as New Zealand secured the bronze medal in the Women's Pairs.

In a tense finale to the play-off with Jersey, New Zealand's Khan sisters, Jan and Marina, overcame Suzanne Dingle and Gaynor Thomas 2-1 in the tie break.

In an attempt to defend their Manchester 2002 gold medal, the New Zealanders lost the opener 3-8, but won the second 11-5.

The Khan sisters embraced when they were able to force the game into a third tie-break end.

Younger sibling Marina, 40, then put the pressure firmly back on the Jersey girls when her first bowl, and the first of the third end, rested a couple of inches from the jack.

A brave attempt by Dingle to push the jack away with her second last bowl missed by the barest of margins and handed New Zealand the win.
