Indians made a good start to their campaign in the Asian senior individual squash championship here on Friday with three of them who made their appearance - Saurav Ghosal, Harinder Pal Sandhu Aand Mahesh Mangaonkar - moving to the third round.

All the three Indian players had a first round bye. Second seeded Ghosal had it easy against Abdulrahaman Al-Malki (Qatar) 11-4, 11-3, 11-2, and Sandhu had to stretch himself to beat local player Falah Muhammad who gave up in the third game,11-5, 11-9, 6-0.

Mangonkar, on the other hand, was up against a fit and agile Korean Park Jong Myoung. Park even grabbed a game to queer the pitch, but the Indian played tight and deservedly won 11-7, 11-13, 11-7, 11-1.
