Commonwealth Games 2018: India vs Sri Lanka, Badminton Mixed Team, Live Updates

By Sportskeeda Desk | Last ModifiedApr 05, 2018 07:20 IST

It is underway!


07:20 (IST)5 APR 2018

Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for all the Badminton action from the Gold Coast!

That's all from us for this match. Will be back with more updates once the other matches start.

07:18 (IST)5 APR 2018

Brief scores of all the matches:

1. Pranaav Chopra & Ruthvika Gadde of India win the Mixed Doubles with a scoreline of 21-15, 19-21 & 22-20 against Sri Lanka's Sachin Dias & Thilini Pramodika Hendahewa. The most thrilling match to watch I must say! For a minute it looked like India will lose the match. This could have been a huge upset for India against bottom seeded Sri Lanka. The Indians surely need to buck up as they should have sealed the match against the Lankan team in two games itself.

2. India's Kidambi Srikanth wins 21-16, 21-10 against Karunaratne Niluka in the Men's singles category. No surprises here! A relatively easy win for India.

3. Satwik Rankireddy and Chirag Chandrashekhar Shetty of India winning comfortably in the Men's doubles category against the Lankan pair of Dinuka Karunaratna & Buwaneka Goonethilleka. Score: 21-17, 21-14.
