One is losing. One is to win hearts by defeating. But what happened to the pair of Chirag and Satwik of India in the men’s doubles event played on the badminton court of Tokyo Olympics, is called losing even after winning. Yes, India’s Chirag and Satwik fought in straight games against the pair of Great Britain. But despite this victory, he could not get a ticket to the quarter-finals. This is because two teams from each group have to advance. And India ranked third in its group after Taiwan and Indonesia.
Chirag and Satwik have easily won their match against the pair of Ben Lane and Sean Vandy of Great Britain. They defeated the British pair 21-17 in the first game while they won the second game 21-19. The British pair tried hard to take the match to the third game by winning the second game but the Indian pair of Chirag and Satwik did not allow this to happen.
Because Of This, Chirag-Satvik lost Even After winning
Why did Chirag and Satwik not get tickets for the quarterfinals of Badminton men’s doubles even after winning, now let’s understand it in detail. A big reason for this was his staying at number three in his group. Apart from this, the total number of matches won by India was less than that of Taiwan and Indonesia in the top 2 of the group. For India to reach the quarter-finals, it was necessary for them to win against Great Britain. At the same time it was also necessary that Indonesia win their match against the Chinese Taipei pair. Now it happened that what was in the hands of the Indian pair, they did it well. But on the other hand the Indonesian pair lost their match. This was the reason why India could not cut the ticket for the quarter-finals.
After Satwik and Chirag’s exit, all medal hopes now rest on PV Sindhu, who is representing India in women’s singles.
