The India B boys, led by Snehit Suravajjula, Parth Virmani and Anukram Jain, pulled off a minor 3-2 upset by toppling the A team that featured Jeet Chandra, Manav Thakkar and Manush Shah in the title round.

Suravajjula began the march for India B by beating the higher rated Chandra 3-2 (11-6, 7-11, 11-6, 2-11, 11-8) in the opening singles. Parth Virmani however couldn’t build on the lead, losing to a dominant Thakkar 0-3 (6-11, 4-11, 9-11).

The B team slipped further behind as Anukram Jain failed to unravel Manush Shah in the third singles; he lost 1-3 (11- 7, 6-11, 9-11, 10-12).

But in the reverse singles, India B were back at the top of their games, with Suravajjula again leading the charge. He beat Thakkar 3-2 (11-9, 8-11, 4-11, 11-8, 11-5) to take the exciting clash to the decider.

Virmani then put up a brave fight to beat Chandra 3-2 (5-11, 11-6, 11-8, 8-11, 11-6).

Almost around the same time, India’s cadet girls were on the verge of creating history of their own. Led by Mumbai’s Diya Chitale, they got past Korea Republic B in the semifinals 3-1.

In the final against Chinese Taipei, they showed their mettle once again before losing 2-3.
