England’s players assured themselves of three more medals at the Commonwealth Championships with superb team play in the doubles events.

The pairings of Sam Walker/Chris Doran, Andrew Baggaley/Daniel Reed and Joanna Parker/Kelly Sibley all managed to reach the semi-finals, meaning tomorrow they will play off for the chance to win a gold medal. Parker and Sibley appear to have the best opportunity with the Indian pair of Madhurika Patkar and Neha Aggarwal in their way.

The players’ respective singles campaigns, however, were cut short with only Andrew Baggaley and Joanna Parker able to make the quarter-final stage and, in the process, still missing out on the chance of a third piece of silverware.

The 30-year-old Baggaley was the closest to reaching the semi-final stage with a superb performance against world no. 26 Zhan Jian, which was not merited with a victory.

He took the Singaporean top seed to the deciding seventh game in their match – only to miss out 11-5 as his opponent took control.
