As the Indian team defeated Kuwait 2-0 in the championship, Saurav Ghosal and Ramit Tandon each won all three of their games.
By capturing their first gold medal at the Asian Championships, the Indian men’s squash team wrote Asian Championships history.
The 2022 Asian Squash Team Championships were held in Cheongju, South Korea, and were won by the Men in Blue, who defeated Kuwait in the championship match in straight sets.
Ramit Tandon and Saurav Ghosal each triumphed in all three of their matches as India defeated Kuwait 2-0. In the opening match, Ramit defeated Ali Aramezi by a score of 3-0. Tandon enjoyed an easy 11-5 victory in the first game, but Aramezi put up a fight to tie the match in the second.
However, the Indian persisted, winning 11-7. Ramit capitalised on this momentum in the third game, winning 11-4. Then, in the second match, Saurav Ghosal defeated Ammar Altamimi in a straightforward victory after a rocky beginning.
In the first game, Ghosal and Altamimi were evenly matched, but the 36-year-old Kolkatan kept his composure and won 11-9. Ghosal maintained his strong play in the following two matches as well, and after victories of 11-2 and 11-3, India won the gold.
The men’s team of Ramit Tandon, Saurav Ghosal, and Abhay Singh won their pool in earlier stages of the competitions and advanced to the semifinals.
In their Pool A games, they defeated Chinese Taipei, South Korea, South Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, and Pakistan 3-0.
Tanvi Khanna, Sunayna Sara Kuruvilla, Anahat Singh, and Urvashi Joshi’s female team, on the other hand, finished second in Pool B with two victories and a loss.
The Indians defeated Singapore and Iran by a combined score of 30 but lost 0-3 to Hong K, who won the pool.
They faced Malaysia in the semifinals and lost 3-1. The Indian men’s team has never won a gold medal before, whereas the women’s team did so in 2012. This year’s bronze medal was their seventh overall.
