Indian table tennis stars Manika Batra and Sreeja Akula advanced to the quarterfinals of the women’s singles category at the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham on Friday. Batra steamrolled Australian Jee Minhyung 11-4 ,11-8, 11-6, 12-10 to book her place in the quarterfinal.

The 27-year-old star paddler will now take on Singapore’s Jian Zeng in the last eight clash later tonight.

Sreeja, on the other hand, played out a

nerve-wracking encounter against Charlotte Carey from Wales to secure herself a last-eight berth.

The 24-year-old toiled hard but held her nerves to beat Carey 8-11, 11-7, 12-14, 9-11, 11-4, 15-13, 12-10.

Sreeja will lock horns with Canada’s Mo Zhang in the quarter-final which is also slated to be held later tonight.

Earlier in the day, both Manika and Sreeja also reached the mixed doubles quarterfinal events.
