August 23, 2012 15:22 IST

Achanta Sharatha Kamal scored a crushing straight game win over CRSB's Eric Fernandez to help PSPB enter the men's final of the All India Inter Institutional Table Tennis Championships, in Kolkata on Thursday.

Achanta thrashed Fernandez 11-8, 11-8, 11-7 at the Khudiram Indoor Stadium.

Anthony Amalraj and young Soumyajit Ghosh, taking the cue from the senior pro, went about their tasks methodically to demolish Central Revenue team 3-0.

PSPB will clash with RSPB in the final. RSPB defeated Airport Authority of India (AAI) 3-1 in their semifinal.

Earlier, the PSPB women also made it to the final beating Dena Bank 3-1. PSPB women will meet RSPB who blanked out Airports Authority of India 3-0 in the other semifinal.

Though PSPB's Youth girls and Youth boys' teams retained their titles—boys and girls registered all-win record with six and eight points, respectively—it was a bit of struggle for PSPB girls against a determined AAI girls.
