Islamabad: Pakistan's Midas-touched wrestlers Azhar Hussain and Muhammad Inam Monday played down their chances in next week's Commonwealth Games, saying a lack of international match practice had hurt their chances of repeating their golden performances.

Hussain, 30, won a gold medal in 55-kg freestyle wrestling in the Games held in New Delhi in 2010 and added a silver in the Greco-Roman 55-kg category.
