As the saying goes here at the table tennis, if you can’t beat Singapore at least beat the Australians. That’s exactly what Andrew Baggaley and Liam Pitchford have done to take the bronze in the men’s doubles. They beat Henzell and Frank in a nail-biting match; 3-2. This is a huge moment for the pair, and especially for 17-year-old Pitchford who’s proved himself one to watch in the future with a long reach and ability to return even the most powerful smash with deadly accuracy. This win marks the end of a fantastic outing for a young England table tennis team in Delhi.”

From BBC Sport’s Ben Moore in Delhi:

Liam Pitchford/Andrew Baggaley bt. Henzell/Frank (Australia) 11-7, 8-11, 12-10, 10-12, 11-6  (3-2)
