India have pocketed their first win of Uber Cup 2022. Not the most convincing of victories, but they will take it. PV Sindhu started it off, before Aakarshi, Ashmita, and doubles pair of Tanisha-Treesa ensured the win.
The only loss for India came in the first doubles match when Shruti and Simran went down in straight games.
