Saurav Ghosal into the Quarters of the World Squash Championship

Indian squash player Saurav Ghosal has successfully made into the quarterfinals of the PSA World Squash Championship after beating his opponent Joel Makin in a neck to neck clash.

Though 11th seeded Saurav won the match by 11-13, 11-7, 11-7, 13-11, he did not succeed easily. His unseeded opponent fought in a favourable way for every point.

 

Saurav has previously defeated Makin in the CCI International in Mumbai, 2017. But this time, Saurav’s opponent from Wales showed great improvement and emerged as a tough competitor.
