Men’s squash No.6 seed Ryan Cuskelly has withdrawn from his round of 16 singles clash with Malaysia’s Nafiizwan Adnan after sustaining an injury on Thursday 5 April.

Australia coach Paul Price said Cuskelly pulled a muscle in his upper leg during his 3-0 defeat of Othniel Bailey (SVG) in round one yesterday.

Team medical advisors thought it best Cuskelly pulled out from the singles in order to give him the best chance to prepare for doubles.

Cuskelly is due to partner Cameron Pilley in the men’s doubles, where they are the No.1 seeds. They are also the current world champions.

He is also scheduled to partner seven-time Commonwealth Games medallist Rachael Grinham in the mixed doubles.
