Manika ad­vances as Sharath ex­its

Hindustan Times ST (Jaipur) - - World - Agen­cies sports­desk@hin­dus­tan­times.com

Manika Ba­tra notched up three suc­ces­sive wins but Ach­inta Sharath Ka­mal’s hopes of a World Cup berth were dashed on a dis­ap­point­ing day for the In­di­ans at the ITTF-ATTF 30th Asian Cup ta­ble ten­nis tour­na­ment here to­day.

Manika will take on Ja­panese Miu Hi­rano in the chal­lenge round for a quar­ter­fi­nal berth, but for the two male play­ers Sharath and Harmeet De­sai, the chal­lenge ended.

Rahil Gangjee (72) and Ga­gan­jeet Bhullar (74) dropped marginally from where they were overnight at the end of the third round of the Shin­han Dong­hae Open here to­day.

Gangjee, now even par 213 af­ter three rounds, is tied- 29th as against tied-27 overnight, while Bhullar at five-over is tied-58th, three places down from overnight tied-55th on a windy day.

Gangjee, one-un­der through first eight holes parred all ex­cept one of the re­main­ing holes. But that was dou­ble bo­gey on Par-3
