India go down to Malaysia in the Asian Jr semis

India went down fighting to Malaysia in the semi final of the Asian Junior Squash Championships held in Hong Kong. Harinder first on court played another marathon match lasting 105min. The first game itself was 39min where Harinder lead for the better part of the game. Ivan fought back hard to come back and win the game 10-8. Ivan tightened the screws to win the second easily.  Harinder fought back and hung in extremely well to win the 3rd. The fourth was another long duel with both players showing signs of getting cramps. Ivan managed to hold his nerve and close out the match. Sandeep unfortunately never got into the match and went down timidly in 4 games.

Ivan Yuen bt Harnderpal Singh 10-8, 9-2, 5-9, 9-6; Modh. Ashraf Azan bt Sandeep Jangra 9-6, 9-6, 9-10, 9-1
