Squash trials for Asiad commenceJune 6, 2018, Delhi
Squash selection trials for the forthcoming Jakarta Asian Games commenced at the ISA courts here on Tuesday. While the four-member men’s team is virtually decided as per the PSA World rankings, the women’s squad will be selected after the trials.
In the women’s section, the top two — Joshna Chinappa (World No. 16) and Dipika Pallikal Karthik (19) select themselves — with the remaining two spots up for grabs. Seven women are in the fray and the top two will be picked after round-robin play.
“We invited 11 girls. Three declined and one got injured,” National coach Cyrus Poncha told The Hindu. After the trials, the selection committee will send the final list to the sports ministry.
Provisional men’s team for Asian Games (as per PSA world rankings in June): Saurav Ghosal, Harinder Pal Singh Sandhu, Mahesh Mangaonkar, Ramit Tandon.
