CWG: Sharath-Sathiyan, Harmeet-Sanil advance in TT men's doubles

IANS  |  Gold Coast (Australia) 

Indian men's doubles duo of Achanta and Sathiyan Gnanasekaran, and Harmeet Desai and Sanil advanced to the round of 16 in men's doubles competition of the 21st here on Wednesday.

Sharath and Sathiyan entered the round of 16 after thrashing duo Tauramoa Miita and Nooa Takooa 3-0 (11-2, 11-5, 11-6) while Harmeet and Sanil beat Guyana's Shemar and 3-0 (11-6, 11-5, 11-7).

Sharath and Sathiyan had no problems in dealing with the inexperienced pair, comfortably clinching the round of 32 tie.

Sharath and Sathiyan will next take on Sri Lanka's Buwaneka Jayasingha Mudiyanselage and Imesh Ranasingha on Thursday for a place in the quarter-finals.

The other men's doubles pair of Harmeet and Sanil too had an easy outing against the combo, who failed to put up a challenge in any of the three games.

In the round of 16, Harmeet and Sanil will be up against Northern Ireland's and at the Oxenford Studios on Thursday.
