In the men’s doubles, MR Arjun and Dhruv Kapila were eliminated after losing 22-20, 21-13 to South Koreans Choi SoiGyu and Kim WonHo.

The pair of Venkat Prasad and Juhi Dewangan exited the mixed doubles following a 21-12, 21-4 loss to Germans Jones Ralfy Jensen and Linda Efler.

World champion PV Sindhu, former world number 1 Kidambi Srikanth and Tokyo Olympians Chirag Shetty-Satwiksairaj Rankireddy will begin their campaigns on Wednesday.
