CWG 2022, Squash: Dipika Pallikal-Sourav Ghosal win mixed doubles bronze

Dipika and Sourav defeated Australian pair Donna Lobban and Cameron Pillay 2-0 (11-8, 11-4) in a bronze medal match at the University of Birmingham Hockey and Squash Centre.

Against the Australian pair, who had denied them a gold medal in Gold Coast 2018, the Indian pair started with a lot of intention. Dipika was the opening attacker and attacked the Aussies while Sourav anchored the play.

They ran for a 10-3 lead but the Aussies came back to save five game balls. However, the Indian squash players looked to take the lead. The second game saw the Indians play with equal intensity and easily ended the Australian challenge to win a medal match in straight games.

With this, Indian squash players ended their campaign in Birmingham 2022 with two medals.

Saurav Ghosal had earlier defeated home favorite James Willstrop for a bronze in men’s singles, India’s first medal in the singles category at the Commonwealth Games.
