Hosting The Commonwealth Games: A Dream Of The Past?

Malaysia has received a formal invitation to host the 2026 Commonwealth Games. The invitations comes after the Australian state of Victoria cancelled its hosting plans due to soaring costs. We looked back at an episode on Bar None where Daryl spoke with Haresh Deol on the question of whether Malaysia should host the games and the key considerations that must be taken into account.
