That's all we have today from the Indian players in the 2021 Sudirman Cup at the Energia Areena. A proper trashing, if one can put it that way but thankfully the team has a one-day break before their next match.
They certainly need to regroup and rework their strategies before they take on the hosts Finland the day after tomorrow.
Thank you for joining in, I hope you have a decent day after this witnessing this loss.

What a terrible day this has been for the Indian players and fans. They have been absolutely decimated 5-0, failing to win even a single match.
Also, if this was not enough, note that India did not win even a single game. They lost each of the 5 matches in straight games! Surely, China were the hot favourites coming into this contest, but was a 5-0 trashing really expected?
