Both teams are two of the most successful in Thomas Cup history.

The stage is set for a blockbuster Thomas Cup 2024 final between badminton powerhouses Indonesia and China after the two giants booked their spots on Saturday.

In the first semi-final, Indonesia displayed their renowned team depth to cruise past a valiant Chinese Taipei 3-0. The tie was as good as over after World no 7 Anthony Sinisuka Ginting outmaneuvered Chou Tien Chen 21-18, 22-20 in a hard-fought opening singles rubber.

Reigning Olympic champions Lee Yang and Wang Chi-Lin briefly kept Chinese Taipei’s hopes alive by taking the opening game against Fajar Alfian and Muhammad Rian Ardianto. However, the Indonesian duo rallied impressively to prevail 19-21, 21-17, 21-18, and give their side a 2-0 lead.
