Chennai: England were just one step away from defending their world junior squash title for the fourth successive time even as the Indian challenge ended at the quarter finals stage in the team events here on Friday.
England quelled a strong Egypt 2-1 to meet Pakistan in the final. Pakistan beat Australia 2-1 to enter the summit clash.
Earlier, India, who entered their maiden quarters, could do little against England and lost 1-2 with the holders conceding the last match. (PTI)
