This is one of the most historic moments in Indian sport. India has never gone beyond the semi-finals of this prestigious global badminton championship, last reaching there in 1979! The Thomas Cup is considered the biggest honour in the world of badminton since participation is at a Team level and not as an individual.

Ecstatic about India reaching its first-ever Thomas & Uber Cup Final, badminton player HS Prannoy said, “This is a very big win for us. Denmark always has its strength with singles and they have three players who are in the top 15 of the world ranking. I think it is always tough to beat a team like Denmark, the way they have pulled off matches in this tournament has been incredible! Srikanth played extraordinarily well! The support from the entire squad was really good, I think that give me a lot of energy. In my mind, I always thought that I shouldn’t ever give up and see what I can do. I was praying that the pain didn’t aggravate. It started to reduce towards the end of the second game and probably by the third game I was feeling much better on the court. I hope it is nothing serious.”

The new generation of Indian players including Lakshya Sen, Kidambi Srikanth, HS Prannoy and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy & Chirag Shetty have begun an emergence of love for Badminton with their recent triumph at the tournament being looked upon by fans across the nation. India started the tournament off in great style as they hammered both Germany and Canada 5-0 respectively. They beat Malaysia in the quarterfinals in an edge of the seat thriller and won 3-2 to reach the semi-finals. The exhilarating semi-finals saw India seal the tie in the final match as they emerged victorious by 3-2 to claim one hand on the trophy. Team India now faces 14-time champions and favourites of the tournament, Indonesia! Here’s calling out to all the Indians to come out in support of our Badminton team as they look to achieve a new milestone!
