The shuttlers first beat Macau 3-0 in the Round of 16 and then came up with a brilliant performance to oust a strong Thailand 3-2 in the quarter-finals. Reaching the last four, where they will take on South Korea Sunday, assured India of at least a bronze, their first in the discipline since 1986.
However, it was the end of the road for the men's team who lost their opening round match to hosts South Korea.
