KARACHI: Pakistan’s last day in the Commonwealth Games ended with unsatisfactory results as table tennis players and wrestlers failed to win any medals.

Table tennis duo Areeba Sheikh and Farwa Babar lost 3-0 to Northern Ireland’s strong pair Hannah Lynch-Dawson and Emma Ludlow in the women’s doubles at Scotstoun Table Tennis court on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Pakistan wrestler Muhammad Salman defeated England’s Philip Roberts 3-1 in the men’s 65kg freestyle event to qualify for the quarter-finals, where he lost to Canadian Jevon Balfour 3-1 and also crashed out of the men’s freestyle repechage category.

Another wrestler, Muhammad Inam conquered Srilanka’s Ekanayaka Mudiyanas 4-1 in the men’s 86kg freestyle round of 16, but was beaten by Canadian Tamerlan Tagziev in the quarter-final.

@Sri Varahadev:

Un-Islamic advantage, fasting aye?, Is that why Islamic countries like Iran, Turkey, Indonesia, Azerbaijan etc always end up with way more medals in the Olympics then India despite being on average 20 times less the population?.
