CHENNAI: The Indian team entered the knockout stage at the World junior squash championships in Quito after topping Pool D with its second win, a 2-1 effort over Wales on Tuesday. India had beaten host Ecuador 3-0 earlier in this three-team group.
Aditya Jagtap was the first to take the court and even though he made heavy weather of his match against David Haley, he won in four games. In each game he lagged behind before pulling up and putting it across David.
Thereafter Ramit Tandon came on and sealed the victory for India beating Sam Huxtable in straight games with an array of classy strokes.
With the tie decided, the third match was inconsequential and Ravi Dixit conceded the match at one-game all.
India will play the Netherlands in the pre-quarterfinal round next.
The results: India bt Wales 2-1 (Aditya Jagtap bt David Haley 7-11, 11-9, 11-9, 11-6; Ramit Tandon bt Sam Huxtable 11-8, 11-7, 11-6; Ravi Dixit lost to Sam Fenwick 6-11, 11-7, retd.) .
