    That's all folks!

    It was a long day for India at the Odense Stadion. 7 Matches - 6 Wins. Not a bad start by any means. It all started with Kidambi Srikanth showing the exit door to fellow countryman Sai Praneeth and the Indians were then on a roll.

    Apart from Praneeth, the only real blip on the day for India was the men's doubles pair of Manu Attri and Sumeeth Reddy. PV Sindhu's return went as planned, Satwik-Chirag did what they do the best. Kapila-MR defeated a much higher ranked pair, Sameer Verma did the same as well before Kapila and Sikki staged a terrific comeback to end the day on a high for India.

    Thank you for joining in. Do not forget to return tomorrow, we will have Saina Nehwal and others in action!

    What a comeback this was from Dhruv Kapila and Sikki Reddy. They lost the first game. They were trailing in the second, won it somehow. 

    They were trailing in the decider as well, but pocket it comfortably to move into the Round of 16.

    Dhruv Kapila-Sikki Reddy beat Hoo and Cheah 14-21, 21-17, 21-18 in 51 minutes!

    Dhruv Kapila and Sikki Reddy have 3 match points at 20-17. Surely, there is no twist here.

    The Indians have a slight edge at the moment. They need just 3 points to advance to the next round. Can Kapila and Sikki hold their nerves and convert?

    The Indians equalise!

    The Indians have equalsied, AGAIN. They were 10-14 down but have now squared things up at 14-14.

    This is exactly how they pocketed the second game. Is this going down the same route? Or will Malaysia have something better up their sleeves this time?

    4-point lead

    A 4-point lead for Hoo and Cheah at 14-10. Is this it? 

    Or will Kapila and Sikki hit back?

  • 19 Oct 2021 3:15 PM GMT


    And it is once again the Malaysia pair who go into the break with a lead. Just how do they manage to break away just ahead of the interval? Does not matter.

    This slight lead could prove to be decisive as we change ends for the final 10 points.

    What a close contest this is turning out to be. Nothing to separate the two teams in the decider so far.

  • 19 Oct 2021 3:10 PM GMT


    Dhruv Kapila and Sikki Reddy have equalised the scores at 4-4. This is tight, VERY TIGHT.

    Early lead for Malaysia

    Malaysia takes an early 4-2 lead in the decider. Pressure firmly on Kapila and Sikki to fight back.
