It wasn't, however, a happy outing for young squash player Sunayna Kuruvilla, who had to bite the dust while Ramit Tandon conceded his match due to a back injury.
Joshna Chinappa outclassed Meagan Best of Barbados 11-8, 11-9, 12-10 while Saurav Ghosal steamrolled past Shamil Wakeel of Sri Lanka 11-4, 11-4, 11-6 in quick time.
Sunayna Kuruvilla's CWG 2022 campaign ended after she lost to Malaysia's Aifa Azman 7-11, 7-11, 7-11.
Joshna Chinappa, Saurav Ghosal dominated their matches right from the start
Joshna Chinappa was in complete control right from the word go. She won the first two games without much fuss, but Best came back hard in the third one. The ace Indian, who is also a 18-time national champion, put all her experience into play to outsmart her opponent on extended points.
Meanwhile, the Sri Lankan player never got going against Ghosal, who dictated terms right from the start.
Ghosal's shots were precise and Wakeel did not have an answer to his opponent's stupendous play.
Incidentally, both Joshna Chinappa and Saurav Ghosal are searching for their first Commonwealth Games gold medal in singles and CWG 2022 will be the perfect stage for the duo.
Ramit Tandon had to withdraw just hours before his match and his Jamaican opponent Christopher Binnie thus got a walkover into the next round.
