Manika Batra started off the proceedings with a comfortable 11-9, 11-7, 11-7 win over Malaysia's Ying Ho in the opening match.

Madhurika Patkar slipped up a bit when she lost the opening game of the second match to Karen Lyne.

But the Indian recovered by claiming hard fought wins in the next two games before blowing away her opponent in the deciding game to claim a 7-11, 11-9, 11-9, 11-3 verdict.

Madhurika then paired up with Mouma Das to beat the Malaysian pair of Ying Ho and Ai Xin Tee to complete the Indian win.
