Glasgow: Indian shuttlers failed to replicate the performance of the 2010 Commonwealth Games at the 2014 edition here as they lost the mixed team bronze medal playoff 3-2 to Singapore at the Emirates Arena here on Monday.

India, who won silver four years ago at home, could not come out with their best show, losing all three doubles matches, including the crucial women's doubles, to go down to the city-state.

In the first match, scratch pair of R.M.V. Gurusaidutt and Ashwini Ponnappa failed to give India the start they needed as they were drubbed 19-21, 19-21 in 40 minutes by Danny Chrisnanta and Vanessa Neo in mixed doubles.
