Tune in tomorrow for the live updates of India's ties from the Thomas and Uber Cup.


15:53 (IST)20 MAY 2018

Apart from the doubles win by Jakkampudi and Ram, India failed to win any other match. The biggest upset was of course the defeat of Saina Nehwal by Michelle Li.

India have a lot of hard work ahead if they want to win any tie. And obviously, they would hope Saina returns to winning ways in the very next tie.
