However, Sameer Verma in Men's Singles, the duo of B. Sumeeth Reddy and Manu Attri in Men's Doubles and the team of Ponnappa and N. Sikki Reddy in Women's Doubles went down against the Malaysian shuttlers.

India will play 10-time champions China in a must-win tie tomorrow. Malaysia were thrashed by China in the opening game on Sunday.

The 13-member Indian team, seeded eighth this time, comprises of PV Sindhu, Saina Nehwal, Kidambi Srikanth and Ashwini Ponnappa among others.
