Dinesh Karthi praises Sourav Ghosal

CWG 2022: India’s experienced squash player Saurav Ghoshal has created history by winning a medal in this time’s Commonwealth Games. The 35-year-old Sourav claimed the bronze medal in the men’s singles bronze medal match after beating England’s James Willstrop 3-0 in straight games on Thursday. World No. 15 Ghosal registered an easy 11-6, 11-1, 11-4 win over the world No. 24 player from the host country. With this win, Ghosal gave India its first medal in the singles event of squash at the Commonwealth Games.

However, this is Ghosal’s second medal at the Commonwealth Games. But before that he won the mixed doubles silver medal in 2018 along with Dipika Pallikal at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Talking about Ghosal’s match, he dominated from the beginning against Willstrop and the England player had no answer for his game. Wilstrop tried to counter Ghosal in the first game but the Indian did not give him many chances to score points. In the second game, Willstrop’s role was only a spectator and the host country’s player could score only one point in the entire game. There was not much change in the situation in the third game as well and Ghosal continued to dominate and claimed the bronze medal.

On this achievement of Sourav, Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik praised him fiercely. Describing Ghoshal as a champion player, Karthik congratulated him on his victory. Karthik tweeted, “India’s first ever singles medalist in Commonwealth Games. He lost in the first round of the last Commonwealth Games, but waited 4 years to win a singles medal and found fitness as well as confidence. And the passion kept up.”

Kartik further wrote, “You are a real champion and an inspiration to all. God bless.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also congratulated Saurav Ghoshal on his victory. Praising Ghosal, who won India’s first medal in the squash singles event at the Commonwealth Games, the Prime Minister wrote, “It’s great to see Saurav Ghoshal scale new heights of success. This bronze medal won in Birmingham is special. Congratulations to him. Hope you all. This will increase the popularity of squash among Indian youth.”
