Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of squash in Gold Coast.

Vikram Malhotra is the only Indian player left in the Men's category as the competition heads into the Round-of-32. However, he faces one of the most experienced players of the game in the form of Nick Matthew. Matthew who will retire at the end of this year has been one of the sentinels of the game. The England International holds an impressive record at the games. He has won medals in his last four CWG events. In Delhi, he won gold medals in both singles and doubles. He repeated the feat in Glasgow, winning Gold in singles and Silver in doubles.
