Star paddler Achanta Sharath Kamal will play for bronze in table tennis men's singles competition after losing his semi-final match to Nigerian Quadri Aruna at the 21st Commonwealth Games here on Saturday.
The World No.48 Indian lost 0-4 (10-12, 9-11, 9-11, 7-11) to the World No.26 in a gruelling semi-final at the Oxenford Studios here.
After losing the close first game, Sharath failed to find the momentum throughout the contest as he went on to lose the other three games with a narrow margin.
Sharath will now face the winner of the second semi-final between Singapore's Ning Gao and England's Samuel Walker, in the bronze medal encounter on Sunday.
