Also kudos to Sai Praneeth and the pair of Arun George and Sanyam Shukla for taking a game each off their respective Chinese opponents.

It wasn't a day to remember for India as they now exit the Thomas and Uber Cup 2018, but surely they will work on the positives that they got from this tie.
...
In both the meetings so far, Sen managed to take a game off the great Lin Dan.

That itself says how much talent he has. He needs work on his endurance level. It will surely get better as he matures further.

Sen is definitely one to watch.

China complete the whitewash 5-0.

Dan gets the next two points as well.

He wraps up the win!

It's 16-21, 21-9, 21-8 to Dan

Sen dives into the court in an exceptional attempt at defending. But Lin gets the point, anyway.

It's 19-8 to Lin

Big forehand smash into the corner by Sen!

It's 13-6 to the former World No. 1

Great retrieving by Sen but Dan has the last laught at the net.

Dan up 11-4 at the time of the midgame break.

Sen is looking powerless to stop the Dan barrage.

He trails 7-13

At the midgame interval, Lin is up 11-7

Sen is trying his best to counter the Dan attack but is unable to do so.

6-10 he trails
