Dipika Pallikal-Saurav Ghosal win mixed doubles bronze medal

Birmingham, Aug 8, 2022- India’s Dipika Pallikal Karthik and Saurav Ghosal won the mixed doubles bronze medal in squash at the 2022 Commonwealth Games, here on Sunday.

Dipika and Saurav defeated Australian duo Donna Lobban and Cameron Pilley 2-0 (11-8, 11-4) in the bronze medal match at the University of Birmingham Hockey & Squash Centre.

Up against the Aussie pair who had denied them the gold medal at Gold Coast 2018, the Indian duo started with a lot of intent. Dipika was the early aggressor and took the attack to the Aussies while Saurav anchored the play.

They raced to a 10-3 lead but the Aussies came back to save five game balls. The Indian squash players, however, saw it through to take the lead. The second game saw the Indians play with equal intensity and decimated the Australian challenge with ease to win the medal match in straight games.

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

Saurav Ghosal had earlier beaten home favourite James Willstrop for the bronze in men’s singles, which was India’s first-ever medal in the singles category at the Commonwealth Games.  (Agency)
