10-time national table-tennis champion Sharath Kamal withdrew from the 36th National Games with a lower back injury.

He was leading the quarterfinal match against Soumyajit Ghosh 7-11, 12-10, 11-8, 6-1.

After a historic Commonwealth Games outing in Birmingham where he won three gold and a silver, Sharath was the favourite coming into the National Games.

“It’s not a serious injury. He had lower back spasms and with rest, should recover in 48 hours,” said his physio.

After the CWG, Sharath admitted that he hasn’t trained too much for the National Games. He had earlier also announced that he will not take part in the upcoming World TT table tennis team Championships which are going to be held in Chengdu, China from September 30.
