Squash | VAS Championship: India’s Saurav Ghosal goes down fighting in semi-finals
Squash player Saurav Ghosal’s exciting run at the PSA Channel VAS Championship ended with a loss to top seed Mohamed Elshorbagy of Egypt.
The Egyptian beat the Indian 13-11, 11-8, 11-9 in the semifinal played late on Saturday. Ghosal had come into the event as a qualifier and beaten two seeded players enroute to the last four. Elshorbagy, a former world number one, proved a tough nut to crack.
However, it was not an easy match for the Egyptian as he was forced to save a game ball in the first game. Though Ghosal played high standards forcing Elshorbagy to earn his points, it was not good enough for a win.
