Up against the local favourite, Verma was slow off the

tracks and lost the first game in just 15 minutes.

     However, he roared back in the next game with some fine

strokes from the baseline. Angus was distinctly sluggish in

this game and conceded a 10-19 lead. Verma did not take his

foot off the pedal and drew level to take the match into the

third game.

     However, the pendulum swung the other way in the decider

and it was Angus' turn to raise his game. With a partisan

crowd firmly behind him, Angus opened a 7-3 lead.

     The gap kept widening as the match progressed and

although Verma tried his best to claw back, Angus had the last

laugh courtesy his better all-round game.
