India vs Jong Kong Report

Indian women’s team blanked Hong Kong 3-0 to reach the semifinals of the Badminton Asia Team Championships for the first time in the history of the competition in Selangor, Malaysia, on Friday.

India, who had upset China on Tuesday to top Group W, capitalised on a favourable quarter-final draw with two-time Olympic medallist PV Sindhu once again leading the charge.

Sindhu, who is returning after a long injury-induced layoff, started strong against Lo Sin Yan Happy but had to regroup herself after a second game hiccup to win 21-7, 16-21, 21-12 to give India the lead.

Sindhu began the match with a bang winning 11 of the first 12 points and sailed through the opening game. But if she was hoping for an easy outing, Lo had other plans. The Hong Kong shuttler used her deceptive strokes to trouble her opponent and forced a decider.

In the final game, Sindhu was just too strong for her opponent as she once again started aggressively and never looked in trouble.

The women’s doubles combination of Tanisha Crasto and Ashwini Ponnappa then proved that they were the pair in from as they got the better of world no. 18 combination of Yeung Nga Ting and Yeung Pui Lam 21-10, 21-14 to put India within striking distance of the semi-final spot.

Ashmita Chaliha then wrapped up the quarter-final encounter with a 21-12, 21-13 win over Yeung Sum Yee.

Assured of a medal, India will now face the winner of the other quarter-final between top seed Japan and China.

The Indian men’s team will take on Japan in their quarter-final clash later in the day.
