Gold Coast CWG 2018: Dipika concedes walkover in squash quarters

Gold Coast: India's Dipika Pallikal gave a walkover to Canada's Samantha Cornett in the women's squash classic plate quarter-final at the 21st Commonwealth Games here on Saturday.

The reason for Dipika's walkover isn't still clear while the Canadian will now face Tamika Saxby in the semi-finals. India's other bet in the competition, Joshna Chinappa will take on New Zealand's Joelle King in another quarter-final later on Saturday.

Dipika had earlier lost in straight games to World No.10 Alison Waters in the women's singles round of 16 game on Friday.

In another disappointment for India, Cyclist Majeet Singh failed to qualify in the men's 15km Scratch Race at the 21st Commonwealth Games in Australia's Gold Coast on Saturday. Manjeet finished a disappointing 13th in Heat 2 of the competition with England's Christopher Latham topping the list.

Earlier, the Indian trio of Sanuraj Sanandaraj, Ranjit Singh and Sahil Kumar failed to qualify forward to the quarterfinals of the cycling men's sprint event at the Anna Meares Velodrome here.

The Indian trio finished at the penultimate spot, with Sanuraj clocking 10.381 seconds to finish at No.20, while Ranjit and Sahil took 10.486 and 10.584, to finish at 21 and 22 out of the 24 participants.

Australia's Matt Glaetzer topped the qualifications with a games record, clocking 9.583 seconds.
