The All England Open 2021 will get off to a delayed start on Wednesday in Birmingham with the organizers finally releasing the Order of Play after an uncertain morning.

India's top shuttlers will take to the court at the All England Open 2021 later this evening at the Utilita Arena Birmingham for their first-round matches on Day 1.

Earlier in the day, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) had cleared India's badminton players to compete in the prestigious event after three positive tests returned negative results while retesting.

Three Indian players, as well as one person from the support staff, were impacted by the earlier positive tests.

With things having settled down for now, here is a look at the schedule for India's players on the first day of the All England Open 2021.
