Watch: Emotions Run High As India Beat Pakistan To Win Gold In Men's Team Squash At Asian Games 2023

It took a phenomenal performance from the Indian team to clinch a historic gold medal in men's squash team event as they defeated Pakistan in the final at the Asian Games 2023 on Saturday. This was India's first goal medal after nine years with the last men's team category triumph coming way back in the 2014 Asian Games. The team of Saurav Ghosal, Mahesh Mangaonkar and Abhay Singh faced a huge task against Pakistan – a team who emerged victorious in their previous face-off in the competition. However, the Indian players showed tremendous resiliance to come back and clinch a memorable victory.

Mangaonkar faced off against Iqbal Nasir in the first match of the final and although he was able to put up a solid fight, the challenge proved too much for him. He went down fighting 0-3 (8-11, 3-11, 2-11) in the match to hand Pakistan an early advantage.
