India move into Sudirman Cup badminton quarters

India move into Sudirman Cup badminton quarters

The Indian team competing at the Sudirman Cup 2017.

In the dead rubber, Syed Modi Grand Prix Gold runners-up pair of Ashwini and Sikki prevailed over world No 15 Della Destiara Haris and Rosyita Eka Putri Sar 21-12, 21-19 to complete a 4-1 triumph. The Indonesians hit back by taking the second game 21 17.

India were in Group D1 alongwith Denmark and Indonesia.

"What a insane team match against Indonesia, lasted nearly six hours and we have to dig really deep to win the two matches needed to top the group".

Justice Dept asks United States judge to reconsider ruling against Trump sanctuary order
It sent warning letters to nine localities in April, though most of the cities that received them denied being out of compliance. The DOJ said the memo "contradicts numerous bases upon which the court relied" in arriving at its decision to block the order.

They defeated Indonesia in an emphatic style 4-1. The victory over the fifth seeds kept India's hopes alive of making the knockout stage of the tournament. Jwala had become relatively immobile of late, and was inadvertently preventing Ashwini from giving her best. Their sole win came from PV Sindhu in the women's singles tie.

It must be remembered that the vastly experienced 30-year-old Ahmad is an Olympic and world mixed doubles champion, having bagged the gold medal with Natsir at the 2016 Rio Olympics, as well as at the 2013 World Championships.

In the absence of Saina, Sindhu has led the Indian team with distinction by dint of personal performance.

Olympic silver medallist P V Sindhu then registered a victory of 21-18, 21-6 over Line Kjaersfeldt in a match that lasted 32 minutes. The problem for India has always been the doubles, where India struggle.

Indonesia got their solitary win of the day in their next match through the men's doubles World No. 1 pair of Marcus Fernaldi Gideon and Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo. Ashwini and Satwik were trailing 17-20 in the first game before they saved three game points and won it with a five-point burst.

"Yes, we won against Denmark as our shuttlers put in a laudable performance [in Wednesday's round], regardless of yesterday's result", Indonesia's team manager Susy Susanti said in a statement.

India, ranked ninth, have managed to reach the knockout stage of the tournament only once during the 2011 edition, while in the last two editions they couldn't even cross the group stage.

However, in the unlikely event of a Danish loss, the calculators will have to be produced to determine the top two teams in the pool.
