Mens Junior Team Squash Championship 2012
India gets its first bronze medal while Egypt Retain World Junior Title (18/7/2012)
India upset the third seed England 2-0 whom they had never beaten in past and their highest ever finish.
Kush Kumar had a great start, imposing his fast pace to a Richie who was a bit of the back foot, and took two games to get used to that wizardry, such great attacks at the front… But slowly, the English boy was able to lengthen the rallies, put more weight on the ball, and he won the third game 11-9.
And what a finish that was in that 4th game, England having 2 game ball, before making two errors, pushed by Kush finding some excellent width and length. 13/11. Close, close…
The Indian camp celebrated that win as the final win, and they were probably right to do so. Mahesh on paper had better results this week than Ollie, and everybody’s money was on the Indians to win 2/0 now.
Indian had great teams in the past – notably 2004 team with Saurav Ghosal, Siddharth Suchde, Sahil Vora and Gaurav Nandrajog then the 2008 team with Vikram Malhotra, Aditya Jagtap, Ravi Dixit and Ramit Tandon . But this team has eclipsed them all winning this bronze medal our first in the World Junior Men’s Championship and defeating England for the first time.

World Junior Team Squash
It was a case of double revenge for Pakistan in the final of the World Junior Men's Team Championship in Zurich, the biennial World Squash Federation championship being held for the first time in Switzerland.
The second seeds not only beat defending champions Egypt to avenge their loss in the previous final in 2006, but squad number one Aamir Atlas Khan led his country to victory by defeating new world champion Mohamed El Shorbagy to reverse the result of the earlier individual final.
It was the two nations' third successive meeting in the final - and Pakistan made a perfect start when 18-year-old Aamir Atlas Khan, the favourite to win last week's individual world crown, recovered from a game down to beat rival El Shorbagy 7-9, 9-2, 9-1, 9-1 in 48 minutes.
It took a further 64 minutes for Pakistan to win the title - squad number three Mohd Shoaib Hassan, from Lahore, grinding out a 9-5, 9-6, 9-2 win over Egypt's Karim Abdel Gawad to clinch their upset over the event favourites.
The 2/0 win negated the need to play the third rubber, in which Waqar Mehboob, the Pakistan second string, was due to face Andrew Wagih Shoukry.
With previous title wins in 1982, 2002 and 2004, Pakistan are now celebrating their fourth Men's World Junior Team success - equalling the achievement of England (1990, 1996, 1998 and 2000) but one behind Australia (1980, 1984, 1986, 1988 and 1992).
The battle for bronze saw third seeds England take on surprise opponents India, the fifth seeds who had reached the semi-finals for the first time in their history. An upset seemed on the cards when Vikram Malhotra, the Indian number one from Mumbai, beat British Junior champion Joe Lee 9-6, 9-0, 0-9, 9-3.
But it took 70 minutes for order to be restored when England's third string Alex Ingham defeated Chennai-based 16-year-old Ravi Dixit 4-9, 9-3, 9-2, 9-6. Adrian Waller then made sure of a third-place finish for England - making up for their lowest-ever fourth place in 2006 - when he despatched Aditya Jagtap 9-0, 9-4, 9-4 in just 20 minutes.
