That was a gutsy effort from Team India, but it was not to be in the end!

Sumeeth took two points but it was definitely not enough to curb the confidence of his opponent, who is now up to 15-5

The game is moving pretty fast in the direction of Indonesia now.

13-3
...
And he still maintains a three-point advantage.

...
Eight game points for the Indonesian

20-12

...
It's a good start for Mustofa and he is up 2-0

In the last match of the tie, doubles exponent Sumeeth Reddy will take on the World No. 39 Ihsan Maulana Mustofa.

That's a surprising choice but India wanted to rest their main singles players ahead of the quarter-finals tomorrow and that is understandable.
...
Shlok and Arjun began well and put in a great show till half of the 2nd game but the Indonesians are experienced and they managed to raise their level at the most crucial juncture.
