  • Dipika Pallikal and Saurav Ghosal lost 8-10 10-11 in the final of mixed doubles squash at the 2018 Commonwealth Games

Joshna Chinappa and Dipika Pallikal were unable to come up with a repeat gold medal in women's doubles squash at the Oxenford Studios show court here on Sunday. The final lasted 21 minutes and Chinappa and Pallikal, who were defending champions, couldn't match the intensity of their opponents, eventually losing 11-9, 11-8.

"I can understand Dipika is upset but refereeing was not a major issue for me".

"It is great that we could be in the final, we had a great chance to win". The New Zealanders played really well, we had a few bad calls. It is disappointing, but it happens, that is sport. I felt it could have changed the whole scenario of the match if those decisions were fair. They need to be looked at.

Pallikal and Chinappa, who had won the gold medal in the corresponding event at Glasgow four years ago, got off to a slow start in the first game, as the Kiwi pair, Landers-Murphy in particular came out all guns blazing.
