On the other hand, Malaysia Uber Cup Team defeated India with 3-2.

Applause has to be given to Yang Li Lian. After lost the first set with 11-21, she managed to fight back at the second set. In the third set, she was once losing with 2-11. I thought the chance to win the game is very tiny. But, she created the wonderful story! She defeated the opponent at the end with 22-20!

After getting this win, Malaysia has obtain the 'half ticket' to Uber Cup next stage. Unless India defeat China tomorrow, or else, Malaysia will be stepping into the Uber Cup for next round.

All the best to Malaysia Thomas and Uber Cup in the final round!
