The Indian men's team confirmed a quarters berth after they beat Canada 5-0 in the Group C of the Thomas and Uber Cup 2022 on Monday. The team led by Kidambi Srikanth put up a fierce challenge against minnows Canada and maintained their winning streak in the ongoing tournament in Thailand.

HS Prannoy showed his class as he got the better of BR Sankeerth 21-15, 21-12, in 42 minutes. The other men's doubles team of Krishna Garaga and Vishnuvardhan Panjala, made it 4-0 after they registered a 21-15, 21-11 win against Dong Adam and Nyl Yakura. In the last match of the day, youngster Priyanshu Rajawat was stretched 21-13, 20-22, 21-14 against Victor Lai, but eventually the Indian won the match.
