8th WUC Squash - Day 5 of Competitions

CHENNAI -  Host India’s campaign ended in the World University squash championship on Friday when it lost 0-2 to Malaysia in the opening round (virtually the quarterfinal) of the mixed- team event.

Having made its debut in the Championship this year India, seeded 5/8 could not sign off on a memorable note with mssrs Ravi Dixit and Aparajitha Balamurukan falling to Sanjay Singh Chal nd Zulhijjah Azan respectively in the first two singles. That gave Malaysia, seeded 3/4 the winning margin and a place in the semi-finals.

Also moving into the last four were top seed Egypt (which beat Pakistan), South Africa and Great Britain. Proceedings in the Championship ended on an early note so as to provide the players and officials an opportunity to spend some time at a tourist spot.

The semi-finals ( Egypt v Malaysia  and Great Britain v  South Africa) resume on Saturday.
