India wins their maiden Thomas Cup title, defeats defending champions Indonesia 3-0

While India won the Thomas Cup, Indonesia stood 2nd and Denmark secured the bronze medal at the prestigious badminton tournament. 

The formidable Indian team scripted history in Bangkok, Thailand as they won their first-ever Thomas Cup in 73-years of the existence of the prestigious World Team Championship. An overpowering India won 3 games back to back to hand the defending champions and 14-time winners Indonesia a 3-0 defeat on Sunday.

After the perfect start, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty came back from a set down to extend India's lead to 2-0 with an 18-21, 23-21, 21-19 win against the doubles pair of Ahsan and Sukam.
