India settled for silver in women’s squash after going down to Hong Kong 2-0 in the final on Saturday on the penultimate day of the Asian Games 2018. There were no surprises as Hong Kong defeated India 2-0 and won the women’s team gold. Shortly after Ho Tze Lok defeated the young Sunanya Kuruvilla 11-8, 11-6, 10-12, 11-3, Annie beat joshna 11-3, 11-9, 11-5 to complete the formalities.
Indian team consisted of Joshna Chinappa, Sunanya Kuruvilla, Dipika Pallikal and Tanvi Khanna.
Joshna Chinappa and Sunanya Kuruvilla lost their respective matches and Dipika Pallikal never got the chance to play and turn the tide in India’s favour.
A silver was a creditable performance nonetheless, having surprised defending champions Malaysia in the semifinals on Friday.
With a runners-up finish, India equaled their best ever performance at the Games.
Congratulations to the team for winning Silver.
