Indian women's team created history on Saturday by clinching their maiden Badminton Asia Championships title. The women's squad defeated Thailand by 3-2 in the final being held at Shah Alam, Malaysia to emerge as the champions of the 2024 season.

The game started with two-time Olympic medalist PV Sindhu taking on Thailand's Supanida Katethong and beating her in straight games in the women's singles clash. The doubles pair of Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand then went on to record a win against Jongkolphan Kititharakul and Rawinda Pra Jongjai by 21-16, 18-21, 12-16 to extend India's lead to 2-0.

India then faced two consecutive blows as the women's singles shuttler Ashmita Chaliha and doubles pair of Priya Konjengbam and Shruti Mishra, lost their matches, resulting in Thailand even the score 2-2, with India.

The final, thus went on to the decider, with the inexperienced Anmol Kharb taking on Pornpicha Choeikeewong. However, the national champion showed immense grit and impressed everyone by putting on a great show to beat her Thai opponent and help India emerge victorious in the final match and grab their maiden title.
