Mumbai: Having played consistently well to reach the final, defeating their handicap as well as their opponents, the Madraswala siblings, Sadiq and Nusrat fell at the final hurdle, losing in five games to Mukesh Desai and Salim Mistry in the Rs 20,000 prize money ISP-Juhu Centaur Handicap Doubles Squash Tournament, which concluded at the Juhu Centaur squash courts on Monday.

The brother-sister Madraswala duo from CCI raced away the first game at 15-11, raising visions of the straight-games victory over their opponents from the host club, but then it was they who found themselves in trouble after losing the next two 8-15, 13-15. The fourth game was a cliffhanger, with the scores moving neck-to-neck till 14-14, and then to 16-16, before the Madraswala pair could win at 17-16, but it had taken too much out of them and they lost the decider relatively tamely at 10-15.

The victory fetched Desai and Mistry Rs 6,000, while the Madraswala siblings had to be content with Rs 4,000.
