The team of Ashutosh Pant and Sailee Kerkar retained the mixed doubles title at the Bank Muscat-sponsored annual badminton tournament organised by the Indian Social Club Muscat while the duo of Bharathi Ramachandran and Surya clinched the women's doubles title.
In a thrilling mixed doubles final, top seeds Ashutosh and Sailee faced stiff resistance from second seeds Noel Halister and Niyati Rao before scampering to a 21-9, 18-21, 21-13 victory.
When it looked that Ashutosh and Sailee will steamroll to a comfortable win after comfortably winning the first game, Noel and Niyati settled down and surprised the top seed with some brilliant teamwork to win the second game.
With good support from Sailee, Ashutosh masterminded their moves in the decider and staved off the challenge of the second seeds to win the third game.
Top seeds Bharathi Ramachandran and Surya clinched the women's doubles title after recording a convincing 15-8, 15-10 victory over Sushma Kerkar and Mayaja Harish in the final.
Sushma and Mayaja posed a threat to the top seeds going 10-7 ahead in the second game before Bharathi and Surya rallied and outplayed their opponents to claim the women's doubles title.
