Sudirman Cup: India lose 0-5 ag inst China, out of quarterfinal race
VANTAA: Competing without its star players, the Indian badminton team's chances to qualify for the knockout stage of the Sudirman Cup ended after suffering a heavy 0-5 defeat ag inst formidable China on Monday.
It was India's second consecutive defeat after losing the Group A opener to Thailand and now the final match ag inst Finland on Wednesday has been rendered inconsequential.
Up ag inst 11-time champions China, the chances were always slim for the new-look Indian team but the fact that the players couldn't even win a single game reflects poorly on the bench strength in Indian badminton.
The absence of double Olympic medallist PV Sindhu, London Games bronze medallist Saina Nehwal and men's doubles pair of Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy also hurt India's prospect as the team cut a sorry figure at the team-tournament.
奥运会两枚奖牌得住PV Sindhu、伦敦奥运会铜牌得主塞娜·内瓦尔以及男子双料选手Chirag Shetty和Satwiksairaj Rankireddy的缺席也影响了印度队的发挥，印度队在团体锦标赛上的表现令人遗憾。
I just watched the game its a complete joke useless india team sion . Better dont bring all this jokers .
Without proper planning, no proper execution.
Indian team is a big joke
Quite shocked to see thai beat india. But historically india has never perform well at sudirman cup
