Thomas Cup Live: Ginting beat Lakshya 21-8 in the first match
This has been a demolition work. Lakshya manages to get a smash down the line to finish Ginting’s run on 12 straight points and that means that the point is not an exact reversal of what was the point in the first match when these two last met. The first half of the match was an even competition, the second was completely one-sided.

Thomas Cup 2022 Live: Ginting 11-7 Lakshya
Ginting is in full swing now which is not exactly good news for Lakshya. The Indian had equalized to 6-6 but after that he has only been able to take one point so far. Ginting went into the interval with a slap in Lakshya’s face again and the Indian could only hit it off to his left.

India vs Indonesia Live: Ginting 2-1 Lakshya
An attempt at a net shot close does not go right for Ginting and that gives Lakshya his first point. It’s been a fascinating watch so far, with Ginting even getting a backhand smash right into Lakshya’s head.

India vs Indonesia Live Score: Ginting serves
A bit of a delay in the start but the receipt finally starts. There’s a bit of drift in the arena and Lakshya strikes with it. That’s probably why he sends a shot far and Ginting gets the first point.

India vs Indonesia Live Updates: Lakshya meets Ginting again
Lakshya is ranked ninth while Ginting is ranked 5th and the gap between the two was even bigger when they last met in the German Open in March this year. It was therefore quite surprising when Lakshya systematically dismantled the Indonesian and gave him a 21-7, 21-9 hideout. But the result today can be significantly different, Lakshya had been down with food poisoning early in the tournament and has not exactly been the best.
