The Indian squash mixed doubles pair of Dipika Pallikal Karthik and Saurav Ghosal have a chance to win their second Commonwealth Games medal. They will meet Donna Lobban and Cameron Pilley of Australia for the bronze medal match at the National Exhibition Centre in Solihull on Sunday. The match starts at 10:30 PM IST.

It will be challenging for the Indians as the Australian pair are the gold medallists from the 2018 edition in Gold Coast, where they had beaten Dipika-Saurav in the final.

At the Commonwealth Games 2022, Dipika Pallikal Karthik and Saurav Ghosal, the silver medallists of CWG 2018, lost their semi-final 11-7, 11-4 to New Zealand's Paul Coll and Joelle King.

The Indian duo, who won the mixed doubles World Championship title earlier this year, reached the CWG medal rounds after the 11-9, 11-5 win over Zac Alexander and Rachael Grinham of Australia in the quarter-final. They beat Wales' Peter Creed and Emily Whitlock in the round of 16.

The Aussie pair of Donna-Cameron lost 2-0 (11-8, 11-8) to Adrian Waller-Alison Waters of England, the silver medallists at the world championships, in their semi-final. They reached the quarter-final by coming out victorious against the Indian pair of Joshna Chinappa-Harinder Pal Singh in the round of 16. They won 2-0 (11-8, 11-9).

The quarter-final clash against Scotland turned interesting as Donna was up against her husband, Greg Lobban. The pair from Scotland lost 1-2 (11-9, 8-11, 8-11).

Saurav Ghosal won a bronze medal in the men's singles earlier this week. It was India's first medal in squash at the CWG in the singles category.
