Even though Chinappa beat World No. 33 Siyoli Waters, Anaka Alankamony lost against Milnay Louw and in the last match, 20-year-old Sachika Ingale showed resilience to take the match to the decider against Cheyna Tucker, but lost.

With a boisterous crowd fervently cheering for the home team, World No. 31 Samantha Cornett edged past Chinappa in a five-game thriller.

India v Mexico

India could not find the winning touch versus Mexico as the latter beat India 2-0 in the 13th place playoff. World Championship debutante Sachika Ingale lost to Karla Urrutia. Joshna too struggled for consistency and was beaten by World No. 34 Samantha Teran.

Results:
Karla Urrutia def Sachika Ingale 11-8, 11-5, 4-11, 11-7
Samantha Teran def Joshna Chinappa 11-9, 11-7, 6-11, 11-9

Summary

India’s performance at the 2014 Women’s World Team Squash Championships was a departure from the last edition in 2012 where the team had secured the 5th spot. India No. 1 Dipika Pallikal’s absence had a major impact on the team which was heavily banking only on Joshna Chinappa to pull them through. However, Joshna’s indifferent form coupled with lack of able support from her teammates could only give the team a 14th place finish.
