The Indian women's badminton team registered a 3-2 win over Spain in Group B of the 2020 Uber Cup Finals, at Aarhus in Denmark yesterday. Though Spain were without former World No 1 Carolina Marin, the Indians will take the 3-2 win as amorable booster as it was their first match of the event.

London 2012 Olympics bronze-medallist Saina Nehwal played the first match for India and she conceded it after retiring hurt with an unknown injury against Spain's Clara Azurmendi. The 20-year-old Malvika Bansod got India level at 1-1 with a swift 21-13, 21-15 win over Beatriz Corrales.

The young pair of Tanisha Crasto/Rutuparna Panda then helped India take a 2-1 lead after a dominating 21-10, 21-8 win over Paula Lopez and Lorena Usle. Another youngster- Aditi Bhatt then sealed the tie 3-1 for India with a 21-16, 21-14 victory over Ania Setien.

However, the pair of Ashwini Ponnappa and N Sikki Reddy lost the final match of the tie 18-21, 21-14, 17-21 to Clara Azurmendi and Beatriz Corrales. The Indian women will next play Scotland in Group B tomorrow.
