On Tuesday, the senior national selection committee picked a “balanced” team aiming to win the first medal in the mixed team championships. Indian men’s badminton team made history last year by winning the prestigious Thomas Cup. After winning a bronze medal at the Asian Mixed Team Championships earlier this year, Indian team’s confidence boosted even more.

Badminton Association of India secretary Sanjay Mishra stated,

“Sudirman Cup is a prestigious tournament and the selectors have picked the best squad after studying the domestic and international results. We are confident that this team will challenge for a medal this year,”

Team India placed in Group C along with Malaysia, Chinese Taipei, and Australia and their first task will be to reach the knock-out stage from a potentially tricky group.

The return of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy, who missed the Asian mixed team event due to injury, will strengthen the men’s doubles team.
