" Another English pair Alison Waters and Emma Beddoes took home the bronze overcoming Australians Rachael Grinham and Kasey Brown 11-3, 11-5 in a playoff."
Glasgow, Aug 2 - Dipika Pallikal and Joshana Chinappa created history by winning India's first ever squash medal at the Commonwealth Games when they won the women's doubles final in straight games to clinch the gold at the Scotstoun Sports Campus here Saturday.

The Indian combine had a rather easy outing by winning the summit clash 11-6, 11-8 against England's Jenny Duncalf and Laura Massaro, who once again failed in the final after having settled for the silver four years ago in New Delhi.

Another English pair Alison Waters and Emma Beddoes took home the bronze overcoming Australians Rachael Grinham and Kasey Brown 11-3, 11-5 in a playoff.

Though Dipika and Joshana won the first game quite comfortably, they were trailing in the second to the English pair. However, the Indians displayed nerves of steel to overtake their opponents and come out on top to clinch the yellow metal.
