India's national champion Saurav Ghosal beat Switzerland's Nicolas Mueller 11-6, 11-8, 11-8 to win the CCI International JSW Indian Squash Circuit at the CCI courts here on Friday. The 31-year-old Ghosal took home a prize money of $ 7671.

A jubilant Ghosal said: "Just happy to win in India firstly; it's my biggest PSA win as well in a 50k tournament. I made the final in Macau in September, but I lost (to Egypt’s Mohamed Abouelghar). I have taken lot of care of my body this week. I am happy it's worth it.

"I played some great matches; majority of the tournament, I played good squash. That's the important thing for me now. It's a privilege to be here.  Thank you to CCI and JSW and hopefully we can make it bigger and have more tournaments all over India. This will help not just me, but those who are playing the PSA and the juniors who can watch us more regularly, not just once a year."
