CWG: Dipika-Joshna in women's doubles final; Dipika-Ghoshal win silver

Manika Batra won a historic women's singles table tennis gold for India at the CWG

Saurav Ghosal and Dipika Pallikal settled for the silver medal in the mixed doubles squash event of the Commonwealth Games here today, becoming the first Indian pair to achieve the feat in the sporting extravaganza.

Besides guiding India to team gold, Batra had also paired up with veteran Mouma Das to win the country's maiden women's double silver in table tennis.

After comfortably pocketing the opening game, the New Zealanders continued to dominate in the second as the Indian pair struggled to get back and eventually finish on the losing side.

"I can understand Dipika is upset but refereeing was not a major issue for me". The final lasted 21 minutes and Chinappa and Pallikal, who were defending champions, couldn't match the intensity of their opponents, eventually losing 11-9, 11-8.

Russia's U.S. ambassador warns of consequences for Syria strikes
The Kremlin on Saturday condemned Western air strikes on Syria where its armed forces are backing President Bashar al-Assad. "Again, we are being threatened".

It was Pallikal's second silver medal of the Games as she and Sourav Ghosal had lost in the mixed doubles final earlier.

Following their final's silver on Sunday, Chinnappa expressed, "It's great that we could be in the finals, we had a great chance to win. It's disappointing, but it happens, that's sport".

King and Landers-Murphy beat Australians Rachael Grinham and Donna Urquhart 2-0 (11-9, 11-5) in the other semi-final.

This is Batra's third medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, after her failure in Glasgow in 2014. "It is harsh for us, players".
