CWG: Vikram-Ramit win in men's doubles squash

India's Vikram Malhotra and Ramit Tandon defeated Wales duo Peter Creed and Joel Makin 2-1 (11-7, 8-11, 11-10) in a Pool F men's doubles squash match at the 21st Commonwealth Games here on Wednesday.

The Indian duo were off to a winning start in the first game but struggled to continue the momentum in the second game, as the Wales racqueeters managed to square the scoreline to 1-1.

Peter and Joel gave a stiff fight in the third game but eventually Vikram and Ramit kept their composure to sneak past and clinch the game and tie.

The Indian duo will next take on Sierra Leone's Ernest Jombla and Yusif Mansaray in their next Pool F match on Thursday.
