Banga Beats def Hyderabad Hotshots 3-2

    1. Men’s Singles: S Tanongsak (HH) def P Kashyap (BB) 21-20 21-18
    2. Women’s Singles: Saina Nehwal (HH) def Tai Tzu Ying (BB) 21-17 14-21 11-8
    3. Men’s Doubles: Carsten Mogensen/Akshay Dewalkar (BB) def V Shem Goh/Khim Wah Lim (HH) 15-21 21-15 11-1

    5. Mixed Doubles: Carsten Mogensen/Aparna Balan (BB) vs Pradnya Gadre/Tarun Kona (HH) 18-21, 21-16, 11-9


  1. Time for introspection has come to Smashers and Beats earlier than expected. Probably, Kashyap as captain and as player was biggest failure for BB. The continuing dilemma in selecting the players for the matches was another factor. Marin and Yun Hu were not used to full extent. Jan Jorgensen could have been more useful too. May be next year they can emerge better team with improved planning.
