This week at u-19 British open, Indian boys created history and supposed to be the biggest thing that has happened to Indian Squash at the junior level ... In the British Open 2017 edition, India had 3 players finishing 1st, 2nd & 3rd in the boys under 19 category ... An Indian Gold, Silver, and Bronze at the British Junior Open ... In 1965 Anil Nair won this event and in more recent times our current National Champion Saurav Ghosal did in 2004.

Yes Arjun, most of the top juniors were in the draw ... Importantly now we need to see if our players manage to repeat similar type of performance in the Junior World championship.
