Beattie loses singles game after rain delay

Northern Ireland bowler Catherine Beattie's hopes of qualifying for the singles knockout stages are hit as she loses 21-13 to South Africa's Colleen Piketh after a rain delay.

The defeat came after Beattie's opening 21-14 victory over Zambia's Getrude Siame.

Beattie, 36, will be in action against a Tongan opponent on Friday but she will almost certainly need to beat Australia's gold medal favourite Karen Murphy on Saturday to keep her hopes alive.
