Badminton Asia Mixed Team Championships 2017, Vietnam

Post by sameerph » Wed Feb 15, 2017 6:01 pm

This week our team is playing Asia mixed team championships which is an Asian equivalent of Sudirman cup. Saina, Sindhu and Srikanth have decided to skip this tournament as they are preparing for busy European season ahead. So, we have a sort of depleted team.

We are in group D along with Korea and Singapore.

We started with a win over Singapore.

India d. Singapore 4-1

[XD] Pranaav Jerry CHOPRA / REDDY N. Sikki (IND,14) l. Yong Kai Terry HEE / Wei Han TAN (SIN,15) 21-23 17-21

[MS] Sameer VERMA (IND,25) d. Kean Yew LOH (SIN,169) 21-9 21-16

[MD] Manu ATTRI / REDDY B. Sumeeth (IND,23) d. Danny Bawa CHRISNANTA / Hendra WIJAYA (SIN,30) 21-12 21-17

[WS] Rituparna DAS (IND,55) d. Xiaoyu LIANG (SIN,28) 23-21 21-18

[WD] Ashwini PONNAPPA / REDDY N. Sikki (IND, 67) d. Ren-ne ONG / Ying Crystal WONG (SIN,530) 19-21 21-17 21-17

Excellent upset win by our #3 player by Riruparna Das set up this win in a tie which could have been close otherwise.

Tomorrow, we play against Korea which is a very tough match.

We lost to Korea today.

India l. Korea 1-4

[XD] Ashwini PONNAPPA / REDDY B. Sumeeth (IND) l. SolGyu CHOI / CHAE Yoo Jung (KOR) 17-21 21-17 17-21

[MS] PRANNOY H. S. (IND,23) d. SON Wan Ho (KOR,4) 24-22 21-9

[MD] Satwiksairaj RANKIREDDY / Chirag SHETTY (IND,59) l. KIM Gi Jung / YOO Yeon Seong (KOR) 15-21 26-28

[WS] Tanvi LAD (IND,59) l. SUNG Ji Hyun (KOR,3) 8-21 15-21

[WD] Ashwini PONNAPPA / REDDY N. Sikki (IND,64) l. CHANG Ye Na / LEE So Hee (KOR,4) 13-21 19-21

Excellent win by Prannoy over world no. 4 . Otherwise disappointing but expected results. Apart from womens doubles, we played a different combination in all other matches. So, it looked like we were testing all in group matches.

We now play Thailand in QF.
