Ravi should be on chess24 too live

Ilya Misyura live here

Akshaya too here

1 pm UK time I think

I assume Akshaya is a serious medal hope, and that Ravi has a chance too

Good luck to all the English players

While groups of 'cadets' are certainly more usually male, the word's primary meaning is connected with 'youngness' or 'training'. I think now girls can be described as 'cadets' without any sense that this is an unusual use of the word.
