    Also, this is a very nice accomplishment for Srikanth. I know a lot of Indian fans have been very harsh on Srikanth (I am not from India). He was a top 3 player in the world before, and going into the 2017 WC, Srikanth was also one of the favorites, having won so many SS before the 2017 WC. But Srikanth did very well to get to the finals in the WC last year. And now he has sealed the deal for India in this Thomas Cup. Srikanth played a perfect tournament this Thomas Cup, winning all 5 of his matches.

    Hope you Indian fans can be a little less harsh on Srikanth. I mean, I bet Srikanth feels awkward enough, losing his #1 spot to Laksha Sen. I know Srikanth has had a few rough years since 2017, but you got to admit, with the silver medal at the WC, and now winning the Thomas Cup with a perfect 5-0 record in his matches, Srikanth has delivered in for India in the last 6 months.

    India is the 6th team to win. Who will be the 7th? Korea, Thailand or Taiwan?

    Sindhu winning WC
    Neeraj Chopra winning first OG Gold in athletics
    India team winning Thomas Cup

    These 3 moments are always etched on my heart (hearing national anthem). Also, Saina winning OG bronze. That was the first time I saw Indian flag being raised in Badminton arena.

    The Indian players are having a great time with the cup. Like a new toy for them.

    Satwik/Chirag kind of reversed what happened to them at OG. Lost to Wang/Lee in group and then winning the whole thing...

    I hope Srikanth can win more titles now because Individual title are more important than team title. Its tough for him not winning titles. His attacking play is good.

    Srikanth had a perfect record, 5-0. Prannoy also had a perfect record, 4-0, but did not get a chance to play his last match.

    Kidambi Srikanth for sure. He also didn't loose a single match he played, did he? Prannoy definitely did his part too. But today, Lakshya 's win was very important.

    Nah bro, this is going to be huge, the way LS came back from demolition, same for MD1, this is a stuff of fairy tales. Choreographed cricket like sports can never share/trust such emotion.

    I have to say I am specifically highly stoked for Kidambi Srikanth. This must feel good to him and we might see a slightly different, more confident and purposeful Sri for the remainder of his career.
