Kidambi Srikanth followed up to maintain lead 2-0 with a 21-7 21-12 win over Murad Ali in the men’s singles fixture. In the third match India’s domination cleared as P.V. Sindhu pulled off a comfortable 21-7 21-6 win over Mahoor Shahzad. Sindhu’s victory gave India a 3-0 lead and assured the tie to take home. Having secured the win, India’s men’s doubles pair of Rakiraddy and Shetty took the court. The duo completed a straight set 21-12 21-9 win over Pakistan’s pair of Mohammad Bhatti and Murad Ali. The last fixture of the tie saw the women’s doubles team of Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand beat their opponents Mahoor & Ghazala 21-4 21-5 to complete the sweep. Pakistan's journey CWG badminton in the mixed team event ended last night after another miserable defeat by Sri Lankan shuttlers, as they won best of five ties with 4-1 games. Olympian Mahoor won her single with uncomforted points 22-20, 21-15 against young Vidara Suhansi Vidange, who just started her international career and has no place in the ranking.
