Kuala Lumpur: India failed to make the quarterfinals of the Sudirman Cup mixed team badminton championship after suffering a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Indonesia in their second group match in Kuala Lumpur on Monday.

Parupalli Kashyap was the lone Indian who could offer some solace by registering a 21-18 21-14 victory over Rumbaka Dionysius Hayom in the men's singles category, even as PV Sindhu along with other Indians were outclassed by the Indonesians at the Putra Stadium.

India had already lost two ties before World number 11 Kashyap managed to prevail over a lower ranked opponent in a 44-minute battle.
