England duo Amy Pharaoh and Sophie Tolchard claimed silver after losing a thrilling final to Australia in the lawn bowls women's pairs at the Commonwealth Games.

Australia's Ellen Ryan and Kristina Krstic looked to have turned around their 18-17 deficit in the final end, only for Pharaoh to force an extra end with a driving bowl.

In sudden death, a Pharaoh effort gave England an early gold-medal lie, but Ryan's last throw won the tie 19-18 for Australia.

England have now won four medals in total on the green at the Commonwealth Games.
