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.

22:03 (IST)22 MAY 2018

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.

21:58 (IST)22 MAY 2018

21:47 (IST)22 MAY 2018

Sen still has a long way to go if he wants to catch up with the Chinese.

He is now 2-9 down

21:22 (IST)22 MAY 2018

21:22 (IST)22 MAY 2018

The Chinese can't control his errors and that has allowed Sen to go up to 19-16.

21:21 (IST)22 MAY 2018

The great Chinese has fought back to 15-17, but it is pretty impressive from the young Indian so far.
