    We will have a better idea of the various team's strengths and weaknesses once the line-up is known.
    And predictions will be more meaningful by then. :D
    But when will they release the names? Sat evening? Or Sun morning just before the scheduled matches?

    Almost all the strong countries entered the maximum 10 players for both the TC and UC.

    But a few could not gather enough quality players and have only a token representation of 4, 5 or 6 players. These countries are likely to be at a disadvantage, especially if some of their players are not in form or are injured.

    The purpose of consolidating the teams into one thread is to make for easier reading and reference. Furthermore these are the final official lists from the various participating countries that have taken into account last minute changes.

    Prannoy is injured. Ajay plays 1st MS. Sameer may play 2nd singles and Sai Praneeth may play 3rd singles

    China are likely to win both. The only surprise that can win Thomas Cup are either Malaysia or Indonesia.

    Uber Cup would be boring with China winning

    Nope, the rank order of Sameer is lower than Praneeth.

    The order should be like this:

    • Ajay Jayaram WR: 20
    • H.S Prannoy WR: 27
    • B. Sai Praneeth WR: 34
    • Sameer Verma WR: 38
    • Sourabh Verma WR: 177

    So, if Prannoy skip... the second MS will be Praneeth.

    No, your prediction is right. But the players make it bad.
