Historic title triumph: India stun Indonesia 3-0 to win Thomas Cup

Historic title triumph: India stun Indonesia 3-0 to win Thomas Cup

Dishing out a performance for the ages, India’s men’s badminton lifted the Thomas Cup title with a commanding 3-0 win over powerhouse Indonesia on Sunday, a historic triumph that will enhance country status in the sport.

World Championships medallist Lakshya Sen, Kidambi Srikanth and doubles players Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy delivered when it mattered the most to stun the 14-time champions.

After being off-colour in the knockout stages, young Sen handed India a 1-0 lead with a come-from-behind 8-21 21-17 21-16 win over world number five Anthony Sinisuka Ginting in a superb show of temperament and skill.

The country’s best doubles pair of Rankireddy and Shetty then showed nerves of steel as it saved four match points in the second game to eventually outwit Mohammad Ahsan and Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo 18-21 23-21 21-19.

In the second singles, Srikanth outclassed Asian games gold medallist Jonatan Christie 21-15 23-21 in 48 minutes to seal the historic victory.

An incredible week culminated in a fitting manner for Indian badminton as the country had never reached the summit clash of the world’s most prestigious team event.

Sen gave a terrific display of his mental fortitude as he recovered from the opening game reversal to outwit his higher-ranked opponent. It was his second win in as many career meetings against Ginting.

The match was fast-paced with the two players producing angled returns in the rallies to put each other in awkward positions.

At the break, Ginting was 11-7 up and it was a one-way traffic there after as the Indonesian easily walked away with the first game.

After the change of sides, Lakshya played better and led 7-4 before entering the break with four-point advantage. Ginting mounted his attack to narrow the lead to 11-12 but Sen kept a tight grip on the rallies and grabbed five game points and took the match to the decider.

Sen continued to engage his rival in rallies but Ginting rode on his precision to make it 5-1. The Indian showed great temperament as he slowly scripted a comeback, cutting the lead to 6-8.

Ginting managed to establish a 11-7 lead at the break with Sen going to net.

Back in the better side of the court, Sen started dominating the rallies as Ginting flunked the lines twice, allow the Indian to claw back at 12-12 with a cross court smash after a long rally.

Sen slowly pulled away with a flurry of points to move to 18-14.

A quick return to serve from Sen and a wide shot from Ginting took the Indian to four match points and he converted with another tight net shot, which kissed the tape and fell over.

Sen fell flat on the court in disbelief.

Next it was Satwik and Chirag’s turn to own the stage and they showed their tenacity against Ahsan and Sukamuljo.

After losing the first game narrowly, India came back strong in the second and took the match to the decider after saving three match points.

In the third game, India tried to lift high and use the court. It worked as they led 11-9 at the break in the third game.

After a tight battle, it became 16-16. India showed better nerves and won a crucial video referral. Satwik unleashed a smash and once Sukamulyo went to net, it was two match point advantage for India.

Indonesia saved one but there was more drama in store as Satwik next received a yellow card for delaying to get ready for a serve. But Chirag produced a cross court smash to close the contest and let out a roar as India were up 2-0.

In the second singles, Srikanth played a measured game, keeping the rallies short and nailing it every time the shuttle was in his hitting range. It worked as his precise smashes on both the flankes earned him points.

Srikanth was 8-3 up but he committed too many unforced errors, allowing Christie to draw parity at 15-15. The Indian though kept things under control, making it 20-16 and sealing it when Christie went to net.

The second game was no different but Srikanth managed a three-point advantage at the interval. After the break, Christie turned the tables with a six-point burst from 10-13 to jump to take a three-point cushion.

However, a couple of errors from Christie and Srikanth drew level at 18-18.

Another exciting rally ended with a jump smash as Srikanth was two points away from a win. However, Chirstie was the first to move to game point when the shuttle got deflected from the net.

Srikanth managed to save one but Christie again moved to game point with a quick reflex.

Srikanth then grabbed a championship point with a smash and sealed it with another cracking high-jump smash. The Indian turned towards his teammates, punching his fist in the air and the entire squad run across the court, jumping in joy.
