Lower rung seeded India suffered its second defeat in two days, losing to fifth seed France this time having lost to Hong Kong earlier in the WSF world womens team squash championship at Niagara-on-the-lake in Canada.
France defeated India 3-0 in the Group D match on Tuesday to keep its hopes alive of progressing where India needs to win one its next set of matches against Austria or South Africa to stay in the race for a 9-13 position.
It was another bleak show from the Indians. Anaka Alankamony started aggressively against world number 40 Coline Aumard but could cope with the pressure as the contest wore on. Mistakes crept and the French player wrapped it up easily. Joshna Chinappa failed to inspire against World number six, Camille Serme and that decided the tie. Newcomer Sachika Ingle gave a good account of herself, according to Maj S. Maniam, who is with the team but despite playing two close games and fighting it out, lost to Cyrielle Peltier in the end.

 FRANCE bt [13/16] INDIA 3-0 (Coline Aumard bt Anaka Alankamony 11-4, 11-6, 11-5 (27m);
