There was no disgruntled coach to lock him out as shown in the blockbuster movie 'Dangal' but Mahavir Phogat still missed watching daughter Babita Phogat's silver-winning campaign at the CWG yesterday after he was unable to get tickets to enter the venue.

The legendary coach was here to watch defending gold-medallist Babita compete in the 53kg category. "My father came for the first time to watch my bout and I am sad that he has been here since morning but could not get tickets. An athlete is entitled to two tickets but we have not even been given those. I tried so much, but he had to sit outside. He couldn't watch it here and he couldn't watch it on TV either," said Babita.
