Indian squash player Harinder Pal Sandhu was phenomenal at the Victoria Open squash tournament and clinched the title. The world 77th-ranked squash player from Mohali downed the Australian top seed Rex Hedrick, 3-1 (12-14, 11-3, 11-4, 11-7) in front of his home crowd to earn a second major in two weeks.

The world number 77, Sandhu won the South Australian Open last week, which gave the youngster enough confidence to win another title at the PSA World Tour event without dropping single set.

Hedrick posted tough competition to the 28 year old Sandhu, grabbing the first set 12-14 on extra points but the Indian struck back and held his nerve to romp to a victory claiming next 3 games straight.

Sandhu who has already set his sight on the upcoming world doubles championships in Manchester, will now return back to the Indian Squash Academy in Chennai to begin his preparations for the tournament.
