The Indian team maintained its momentum in the second game, jumping out to an early 8-5 lead. As they struck some strong returns, Treesa and Gayatri’s advantage began to expand. Treesa/Gayatri picked up the tempo after the interval to increase their lead to 14-8. The Indian team won the second game easily to win the match, helped by their opponent’s mistakes.

The world number two team of Satwik Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty played against Kenneth Zhe Hooi Choo and Ming Chuen Lim of Australia in the second match of the day. In the first game, the Indian team got off to a strong start and maintained a lead the entire time to win 21-16.
