Sometimes Shrikant is ahead, sometimes Christie! And this last game was fixed at 21-21 at one time. From here, Srikanth scored two more points and with Srikanth winning the match 23-21, India created history. Crores of Indians, sitting in front of the TV set, danced in their homes because it was exactly the same sight, when the whole of India was wrapped around Neeraj Chopra at the time of the Olympics.

Srikanth’s efforts and the first two matches laid the groundwork for India’s historic victory.
India’s rising superstar Lakshya Sen beat world No. 4 Anthony Sinisuka 8-21, 21-17, 21-16 in the first match of the first day to give India a 1-0 lead. However, Sen had a nervous start and in the first game as if he surrendered to Anthony, the next two games saw a different form of Lakshya Sen. Played such a wonderful badminton that Anthony did not play in front of Sen’s serve and return shots. And winning the next two games, Lakshya took India 1-0 in the best of five battle.
This will go on for some time now 🕺🥳
We thank each & everyone for your support ❤️#TUC2022#ThomasCup2022#ThomasUberCups#IndiaontheRise#Badminton pic.twitter.com/pMpKHdILaO
