CWG 2022 Opening Ceremony Live Streaming: The 2022 Commonwealth Games is slated to begin on July 29 and will span 11 days before culminating on August 8. The sporting extravaganza will witness the participation of 72 countries, featuring more than 5000 athletes competing for a podium finish.
Gold medal winner in javelin throw at the 2020 Tokyo Oympics, Neeraj Chopra was to be India’s flag bearer at the opening ceremony but now the responsibility will be fulfilled by ace shuttler PV Sindhu and men’s hockey captain Manpreet Singh.

Queen Elizabeth will be giving the opening ceremony a miss because of her health and mobility issues. But, Prince Charles will be in attendance. The event will also see the new wave band – Duran Duran heavy metal band Black Sabbath’s guitarist Tonny Tommi, etc. performing live.
