    Erm what is your belief based upon? The seedings will probably be 1-Saina 2-Sindhu 3-Kirsty 4-Michelle Li. In this case, if P.C. Thulasi reaches the QF, she will have to play one of the four seeds, and here, if she has to play either Saina/Sindhu (presuming they're in the QF), a spot would automatically be wasted.

    I have already mentioned that above....pc can upset Kristy/li in that case there is a chance of medal...
    Anyways even if she fails to upset any of the seeds in QF it will still be a better performance...I guess AP/TK can't even battle till the quarters....

    Damn. LCW just posted to Facebook that he won't be attending the Commonwealth Games. He is "going to the hospital for injections" into his thigh muscles to address an injury he received during the Thomas Cup.

    Just read the post on his FB. His absence opens up the MS field and will certainly motivate the others to play much better.

    India seeded third at Commonwealth Games badminton

    GLASGOW: The Indian badminton squad for the mixed team event has been seeded third at the Commonwealth Games to be held here from July 23 to Aug 3. Badminton will feature on 11 days of the Games, starting July 24.

    Indian shuttlers emerged a CWG power in the category thanks to Saina Nehwal (women's singles), Parupalli Kashyap (men's singles) and Ashwini Ponnappa/Jwala Gutta in women's doubles, all of whom starred in the country's silver medal finish at the 2010 edition in New Delhi. They are expected to feature in this year's contests as well.

    The mixed team event consists of a group stage followed by a knockout phase with each tie determined from best-of-five contests featuring matches in each of the five categories.

    The 23 participating teams are divided into six groups: five groups consisting of four teams each and one with three teams. The six group winners and two runners-up with the best records in the groups will progress to the knockouts.

    Powerhouse Malaysia will start their defence of the mixed team gold medal as top seeds. The south east Asian nation won the mixed team event in the last two editions and will be aiming for a hat-trick here.

    Malaysia are seeded No.1 thanks to their top performers in the five individual categories -- Lee Chong Wei (men's singles), Tee Jing Yi (women's singles), Hoon Thien How/Tan Wee Kiong (men's doubles), Vivian Hoo/Woon Khe Wei (women's doubles) and Chan Peng Soon/Goh Liu Ying (mixed doubles).

    England, multiple winners of the mixed team event, are seeded second, followed by India and Singapore, seeded fourth.

    Others in the seeding list are 5/8 seeds Scotland, New Zealand, Australia and Canada, followed by Wales (9), South Africa (10), Mauritius (11), Northern Ireland (12), Sri Lanka (13), Uganda (14), Ghana (15), Jamaica (16), Barbados (17), Kenya (18) and Seychelles (19). Falkland Islands, Guernsey, Northfolk Islands and Jersey are also in the competition but Botswana has withdrawn.

    CWG began in 1930 as the British Empire Games but badminton made its debut 36 years later in Jamaica in 1966. However, the mixed team event only started in 1978 and has been held at every edition since then except in 1998, when the men's and women's team events were held separately.
