And with that, India have been knocked out of the Badminton Asia Team Championships in both the men's and the women's category in the quarter-finals.

India had chances in the men's section but could not take them. They will rue those missed opportunities. In the women's section, India missed the services of Saina Nehwal and the lack of a proper batch of second-string players really hurt them. But here's hoping that things will improve with time.

But the good news is that India have qualified for the Thomas Cup and look to grab an Uber Cup berth as well through team rankings!

18:26 (IST)9 FEB 2018

It is highly impressive that China can still enter the semi-finals with their second-string players, who are pretty inexperienced.

Kudos to Team China!

18:24 (IST)9 FEB 2018

China have progressed into the semi-finals!

18:23 (IST)9 FEB 2018
