Incheon, Sep 23 :

Top seed Saurav Ghosal lost to Abdullah Al Muzayen of Kuwait 2-3 in the men’s singles final of the squash event and had to settle for a silver medal, India’s first in the discipline at Asian Games, at the Yeorumul Squash Courts here Tuesday.

The 28-year-old was the odds on favourite to win the first gold for India in the racquet sport at the Asiad and that belief was only strengthened after he won the first two games.

But shockingly, Ghosal lost the next three games to hand the Kuwaiti a 10-12, 2-11, 14-12, 11-8, 11-9 win in an hour and 15 minutes.
