India win, bad sadly bow out

Do not believe the scoreboard, they said. The stats also don't reveal the complete picture always. 

Here, we see an Indian win, but sadly the Indian duo have bowed out of Tokyo Olympics 2021 as they have an inferior one game difference. The Indonesians and the Taipei pair go into the knockouts from this group. 

What a great experience this is for the young Olympics debutants - Chirag Shetty and Satwiksaireddy Rankireddy. Placed in a tough group, the duo can now walk out with their heads high. 

They started off well beating the Chinese Taipei pair but went down in straight games to the World No 1 Indonesian pair but put it across in style against Great Britain. 

The Indians had a mix of everything - aggression, perseverance and talent. They latched on to the opportunities, they played the waiting game indulging opponents in rallies and then used their talent to the hilt to read the situation in an instant and act.

We hope you enjoyed our LIVE updates. We have boxing up next and we'll see you there.
