Defending champions India have looked invincibles en route to the final of the Commonwealth Games 2022 mixed team badminton event in Birmingham. However, India will take on Malaysia in the battle of equals for the title at the National Exhibition Centre on Tuesday.

Malaysia won the mixed team event at the CWG three times on the trot before India halted their juggernaut in the final at Gold Coast in 2018 with a 3-1 win.

Both India and Malaysia have dominated all their ties till the semi-finals. India clean swept Singapore in their last-four clash. Malaysia beat England on Monday in a similar fashion.

While India boasts of a strong singles contingent in two-time Olympic medallist PV Sindhu and world championship medallists Kidambi Srikanth and Lakshya Sen, only two of them will be on show in the final. Watch live streaming of the India vs Malaysia mixed team badminton final in India. The match starts at 10:00 PM IST.

A mixed team badminton tie at CWG consists of five matches - women’s singles, men’s singles, mixed doubles, women’s doubles and men’s doubles. The team which wins three matches wins the tie.

Malaysia are heavyweights in the doubles field. Tokyo 2020 bronze-winning men’s pair of Aaron Chia and Soh Wooi Yik, sixth in the badminton world rankings, will be the team taking on world No. 8 pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty.

World No. 8 mixed doubles player Chan Peng Soon will team up with Cheah Yee See and Malaysia’s women’s doubles department has the world No. 11 pair of Thinaah Muralitharan and Pearly Tan.

India’s doubles veteran Ashwini Ponnappa will likely pair with Satwiksairaj Rankireddy in mixed doubles and 19-year-olds Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand will have the mantle of defeating their more experienced opponents. 

India haven’t looked as invincible in the mixed and women’s doubles as they have in the singles divisions of the mixed team badminton events at Birmingham 2022.

The singles and the doubles badminton competitions at the Commonwealth Games will start on Wednesday.
