Shuvajit powers Sk Russel

Commonwealth Games gold medalist Shuvajit Saha of India led from the front to steer Sheikh Russel to a hard-fought 3-2 win over Wari Club in the Premier Division Table Tennis League at the Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmed Indoor Stadium yesterday.

Sheikh Russel had made a losing start after Jubair Hossain suffered defeat against Rohit Chowdhury before Shuvajit, who won gold in the doubles event along with Achanta Sharath Kamal in the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games in India, leveled the set by beating Goutam Kumar Das of Wari Club.

Wari reclaimed the lead when Joy beat Palash but Sheikh Russel held their nerves in the fourth and fifth sets as Shuvajit beat Rahit Chowdhury 3-0 and Jubair beat Goutam 3-1 to ensure a 3-2 victory.

In the day's other matches of the Premier Division, Orunima Sports Club beat Uttara Table Tennis Club 3-1, Palolic Group beat Ajax 3-2, Bangladesh Biman Airlines defeated Mariner Youngs Club 3-1 and Armanitola upset Ciciron TT Club 3-1.
