India’s Mahesh Mangaonkar and Anaka Alankamony have both moved up to the second spot in the World Junior Circuit Rankings issued by the World Squash Federation.

Title success in the Indian Junior Open in September last year helped the 17-year-old Mangaonkar achieve the second position – pushing Egypt’s Mohamed Abouelghar, runner-up to El Shorbagy in Belgium, down to number three.

Alankamony, the 17-year-old from Chennai, followed her unexpected success in last year’s Asian Junior Championships followed up by winning the Indian Junior Open at Chennai in September.

In the Asian Junior Championships, Mangaonkar had finished with a bronze medal.

Another India, Apararajitha Balamurukan also made her way into the top 10.

Whilst Egyptian Marwan El Shorbagy retained his men’s number one ranking, England’s Emily Whitlock made her debut at the top of the women’s list.
