Pune, January 19: Gujarat clinched the gold in Boys U-21 doubles category, while West Bengal did the same in Girls U-21 girls doubles category, and Maharashtra continued with its golden run winning gold in the Girls and Boys doubles Under-17 titles in Table Tennis at the Khelo India Youth Games 2019 at the Shri Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex held at Pune.

In U-21 boys doubles final, leading the match by two games one would have hardly thought Maharashtra would lose. But Gujarat staged a solid comeback in the third game and went on to win the next two also to upset Maharashtra 3-2. Manush Shah and Ishaan Hingorani (Guj) played brilliantly in the later part of the game defeating Siddesh Pande and Abduquerque Raegan (Mah) 9-11, 10-12, 11-6, 11-5, 11-7. 

The U-21 girls’ doubles category final saw a battle between West Bengal’s two teams making it to the final. Kaushani Nath and Surbhi Patwani defeated Prapti Sen and Moumita Das 11-9, 6-11, 11-6, 11-8. Kaushani Nath and Surbhi Patwani had a hiccup in the second game but realigned themselves to set up the victory 3-1.

Chinmay Somaya winner of singles gold medal yesterday teamed up with Dev Shroff comprising the Maharashtra team for U 17 boys doubles final. Pitted against West Bengal’s Mainak Das and Sarkar Soumyadeep, the Maharashtra lads went on to win three games on the trot defeating West Bengal by 11-8, 11-7, and 11-4. West Bengal had a glimmer of hopes in the first two games but lost their way in the third one.

In the girls U 17 doubles final, Swastika Ghosh and Diya Chitale (Mah) dictated the terms right from the word go. They did not offer any window to the Assam duo of Trisha Gogai and Gargee Goswami to pose a challenge. Assam could not recover themselves from the early setback of two straight defeats in first two games. Maharashtra’s won easily Assam 11-4, 11-6, and 11-0.

The finals of Girls U-21 girls and Boys Under-21 would be played tomorrow. In Boys, Manush Shah (Guj) will take on Anirban Ghosh (WB), while in girls Kaushani Nath (WB) will square off with Surbhi Patwari (WB).
