The Indian squad for the Sudirman Cup comprises H.S. Prannoy and Kidambi Srikanth in men’s singles, Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy in men’s doubles, P.V. Sindhu and Anupama Upadhaya in women’s singles, Gayatri Gopichand Pullela-Tressa Jolly and Ashwini Ponnappa-Tanisha Crasto in women’s doubles.

According to a BAI official, the remaining members of the Sudirman Cup-bound team will fly to Delhi to give their fingerprints and hope to get the visa on time to participate in the championship.

“We are optimistic about this issue being resolved on time. These things are quite common and have always been addressed by the authorities over the years,” the official said on condition of anonymity.
