Welcome to The Bridge's LIVE blog of India's Sudirman Cup clash against Finland.

After falling to successive defeats in their first two ties against Thailand and China, India are virtually out of the race to reach the quarterfinals. Pride is all that's left to play for.

Can India end their 2021 Sudirman Cup campaign on a high with a win over hosts Finland?

Stay tuned for all the latest updates!

    End of Sudirman Cup for India!

    That's all the action we had from Indian shuttlers at the 2021 Sudirman Cup. The first two days were certainly rough, but what a way to cap it off. Yes, the opponent was just Finland but it was surely refreshing to see the team win today.

    As I sign off for the one last time from 2021 Sudirman Cup coverage, I leave you with two questions to debate about:

    1) Should India have played Ashwini Ponnappa and MR Arjun in Mixed Doubles earlier?

    2) Should India have preferred Tanisha Crasto and Rutaparna Panda as the Women's Doubles pair over Ponnappa and Sikki Reddy?

    That's all from my side. Shubh Ratri.

    With that win for Rutaprana Panda and Tanisha Crasto, India has won the tie 4-1 and ensured that they do not end at the bottom of Group A table. That misery now belongs to hosts Finland.

    India wins 21-12, 21-13

    Tanisha Crasto and Rutaparna Panda convert the very first match point and India wins 21-12, 21-13. 

    This duo had won over the Ashwini Ponnappa and Sikki Reddy in the trials and they have shown their quality here. Certainly a duo to watch out for in near future for India!

    Wonderful drop!

    A wonderful drop shot from Tanisha and India have 7 MATCH POINTS.

    Make that 6!

    India have a 6-point lead out of nowhere, and they are within a touching distance of the win at the Energia Areena.

    India has managed to open up a 5-point lead at 17-12. This is their opportunity to close this match off in straight games!

    Very expressive!

    This is some pair - Tanisha Crasto and Rutaparna Panda. Both of them have been so expressive. Not hiding back any emotions, letting their disappointments known too.

    2-point lead

    India opens up a 2-point lead - the biggest they have enjoyed in the second game. They lead 12-10.

  • 29 Sep 2021 4:48 PM GMT

    India leads 11-10

    India goes into the mid-game interval with an 11-10 lead. This game might go down the wire and we might well see a decider, it seems.

    Tanisha challenges!

    It was called out and Tanisha challenges once again. And Challenge lost once again. No more challenges for India in this game.
