India's star performers in squash, Dipika Pallikal and Joshana Chinappa advanced to the quarterfinals of women's singles event, while its best bet in men's section Saurav Ghosal made the last 16 in the 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Eyeing a medal after missing out on the last edition at home due to fever, Pallikal thrashed Charlotte Knaggs of Trinidad and Tobago 3-0 (11-4, 11-2, 11-1). The Chennai girl will take on Delia Arnold of Malaysia in her next match.

Meanwhile, in the men's section, Ghosal posted a resounding 3-0 (11-4, 11-4, 11-7) win over Paul Coll of New Zealand.

Earlier, Ghosal had beaten Jules Snagg of St Vincent and the Grenadines 3-0.

But there were disappointments in store for Harinder Pal Sandhu, Mahesh Mangaonkar and Anaka Alankamony, who failed to progress further after starting their campaign on a positive note.

In the round of 32 match, Mangaonkar lost to England's Peter Barker 0-3 (4-11, 6-11, 2-11), while Sandhu was shown the door by Alan Clyne of Scotland 2-3 (14-12 9-11 15-13 1-11 -11).
