Represented by Aadarsh Om Chhetri and Divyash Sriastava; in the vital contest India ‘B’ accounted for the Belgian duo comprising Louis Laffineur and Nolan Lerat, the no.6 seeds, by three games to nil.

Impressive, it was the same from the Chinese ‘B’ combination of Tsai Li-Yang and Kuo Yu-Liang, as it was from the Chinese trio formed by Chen Yuanyu, Huang Youzheng and Lin Shidong.

Tsai Li-Yang and Kuo Yu-Liang accounted for Russia’s Sergey Ryzhov and Alexey Perfilyev, the no.7 seeds, by three matches to one in the determining contest, the player to ask the Chinese Taipei questions duo being Sergei Ryzhov. He beat Tsai Li-Yang in the opening match of the fixture (11-6, 7-11, 11-9, 11-6) but defeats for Alexey Perfilyev at the hands of both Kuo Yu-Liang (11-7, 11-8, 11-8) and Tsai Li-Yang (11-7, 11-6, 11-9) plus a doubles reverse (8-11, 12-10, 11-7, 11-5) cost the Russians dear.

Little charity from Tsai Li-Yang and Kuo Yu-Liang, there was none whatsoever from Chen Yuanyu, Huang Youzheng and Lin Shidong. They recorded a three-nil win in opposition to Romania’s Julian Chirita and Dragos Alexandru Bujor, the no.8 seeds, to reserve top spot in their group.

Three surprise first places; not amongst the leading outfits; for the top seeds, pole position was secured in style.

Chinese Taipei’s Li Hsin-Yu and Wang Guan-Ru, the top seeds, reserved first place in their group, as did, the no.2 seeds, Romania’s Andrei Tomica and Darius Movileanu.

Play in the Cadet Boys’ Team event concludes on Saturday 15th September.
