Commonwealth TT: India win mixed doubles silver

IANS

New Delhi - Soumyajit Ghosh and Mouma Das secured a silver in the mixed doubles at the Commonwealth Table Tennis Championships here Thursday, a day on which India made sure of at least six other medals.

The mixed doubles final was the very last match of the day and it turned out to be a one-sided affair. Singapore’s Zhan Jian and Zhou Yihan were too good for Ghosh and Mouma, winning the crown with a 11-3, 13-11, 11-7 scoreline.

Expectations were high from the Indians, who beat the top seeds from Singapore, Yang Zi and Yu Mengyu, 11-9, 11-6, 12-10, in the semifinals.

“We beat the top seeds but our final opponents were too quick. They played really well,” Ghosh told IANS. He and Mouma were leading 7-3 in the third game before losing the next eight points.
