Doha Diary 4

Saurav Ghosal Asian Games, Doha bronze medal for squashDiminutive Saurav Ghosal had the crowd entertained with his delightful front game and his awesome retrieving skills. Beng Hee picked up almost all of Saurav’s attacking shots to the front and at the same time threw in a few of his. Saurav continued with the same sort of game in the third and slowly it was beginning to produce results. Beng Hee was either getting a little late to the ball or were tinning his returns. Saurav took a well deserve third. The fourth was looking good for Saurav as he raced to a 3-0 and 4-1 lead with yet again – delicate drop shots. Beng Hee decided that he should keep Saurav away from the front and went back to playing a lot more lobs as he did in the first two games. Rallies were now getting longer and Saurav’s legs getting wearier. Beng Hee finished of well against a fighting Saurav 9/1, 9/2, 6/9, 9/4
