Yogjakarta (Indonesia): India eked out a 3-2 win over Sweden in their last Group D match of mixed team event to reach the quarterfinals of the World Junior badminton Championships here today.
 
India, who blanked USA, Hungary and Australia 5-0 in the last two days, registered wins in the men's singles, women singles and mixed doubles event, while losing the men's and women's doubles matches.
 
India will face Malaysia next.
 
It was the mixed doubles combo of Dhruv Kapila and Mithula UK, who started the proceedings for India, defeating Carl Harrbacka and Tilda Sjoo 21-16 16-21 21-15.
 
Lakshya Sen, who won the Bulgarian Open this year, then dumped Colin Hammarberg 21-11 21-9 in the men's singles match to give India a 2-0 lead.
 
In women's singles, Ashmita Chaliha then brushed aside Ashwathi Pillai 21-8 21-14 in 24 minutes to make it 3-0 in India's favour.
 
Krishna Prasad Garaga and Dhruv then played their heart out before losing 21-17 20-22 16-21 to Adam Gozzi and Carl Harrbacka in men's doubles.
 
In the last match, women's doubles pair of Rutaparna Panda and Mithula UK lost 22-24 17-21 to Ashwathi Pillai and Tilda Sjoo.
 
"I am extremely pleased with the performance of the squad. The players have been at the top of their form and I am quite sure that we maintain our current form, we will go deep into the tournament," Sanjay Mishra, Head coach of Indian junior team said after the match.
 
"The players have been asked to stay grounded and not get very excited. We are making sure that the players do not get distracted by anything and are fully focused for the game tomorrow," he added.
