Left-handed Manush Shah replaced Manav Thakkar in India’s line-up and in a like-for-like change, the Chinese pitted world number 11 Wang Chuquin, also a left-hander, to face Manush in the third singles.

Harmeet Desai opened the tie against Fan Zhendong but his challenge fizzled out in just 15 minutes against world number one Chinese, who emerged a 11-2, 11-9, 11-5 winner.

Next on the Chinese firing line was G. Sathiyan, ranked 37th, facing Ma Long. The multiple Olympic and World Championships medallist Chuquin finished the contest rather quickly, allowing just five points in the second and none in the third to post a 14-12, 11-5, 11-0 win.

India’s misery ended when Wang Chuquin beat Manush Shah 11-4, 11-5, 11-6.
