Sandhu shocks Ghosal to win maiden nat’l title

Playing an attacking brand of squash, Harinder Pal Sandhu shocked defending champion and 13-time winner Sourav Ghosal to clinch his maiden men?s title in the Senior Nationals at the Cricket Club of India here on Saturday.

Third seed Sandhu looked in top flight as he took a commanding 2-0 lead and was 6-2 up in the third when Ghosal, ranked 18th in the world, led a comeback to take the third and fourth games and forced a decider.

However, Sandhu? ranked 60th in the world - fought his way back from 7-9 in the fifth game to draw level at 9-all and then took the last two points in style to complete a memorable 11-2 11-9 9-11 8-11 11-9 victory in 74 minutes.
