Lakshya Sen, Kidambi Srikanth and the doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty created history as the Indian men’s badminton team defeated Indonesia 3-0 to win their first-ever Thomas Cup gold. India continued their robust run in the tournament and inflicted a clean sweep on the tournament’s most successful team of all time to register a maiden Thomas Cup title.

Lakshya Sen, who came into the final with defeats in the quarterfinal and semifinal, began India’s dominance with a come-from-behind win. Chirag and Satwik found themselves in similar boat after losing the first game. But roaring comebacks in the second game by both Lakshya and Satwik-Chirag forced the match into the decider where the Indian shuttlers edged their opponents in all three matches. Lakshya won 8-21, 21-17 and 21-16, while Satwik and Chirag took the game 18-21, 23-21, 21-19.

All eyes were on Srikanth, and unbeaten in the tournament, the World No. 11 secured a straight game win 21-15, 23-21 over the No. 8-ranked Jonatan Christie to hand India a piece of history.
