    Only Nepalese and home players will play qualifying round tomorrow. And Indian shuttlers should have no problem to beat their opponent.

    Qualifying Round

    In Women's Singles, I'd expect Aparna Balan to qualify for the main draw.
    In Men's Singles, it should be Sachin Kumar Rana who goes through.
    In Men's Doubles, the strongest pairing is Thomas Kurian & Joy T Antony.

    What's strange is that Kurian and Antony are actually singles players.
    Perhaps the Badminton Association of India believes they might do well as a doubles pair. However, it's unlikely they will progress much beyond the initial round in doubles.

    watch out for junior players like ashwini ponnappa and arundathi pantwane. also dhanya nair will b looking to make it thru.

    aparna b is mainly a dbls player but is wily enough to beat the more famous singles names, watch out for her in the dbls draw.

    Indian qualifiers making it to the next round are unknown up-and-coming players

    .
    Just checked it again and it's working. So far, 9 matches have been completed.

    Many of the Indian qualifiers making it to the next round are unknown up-and-coming players.

    You are right about them being unknown outside India.
    However, they are quite well known in the domestic circuit.

    interesting MS plays on 03/25

    in my opinion, these match would be interesting MS plays on 03/25.

    Tommy SUGIARTO - KASHYAP P [15]
    Tsuen Seng LEE - VIDYADHAR J B S
    Sashidhar C.M. - Muhammad Roslin HASHIM

    i expect the first one to be tougher than rest of 2.
