The Thomas Cup is underway right now in Bangkok right now. It is a team badminton event for the male players, and for the first time in the tournament’s long history, India has qualified for the final of the competition. Earlier this week, the Indian team made history by qualifying for the semifinals as they secured a medal for the country.

Celebrities from across the nation lauded their efforts. Earlier today, before the semifinal match between India and Denmark, Chirag Shetty sent a message to the Indian community living in Bangkok on Twitter.

Twitter reacts as India registers famous win in Thomas Cup to qualify for the final

Kidambi Srikanth, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy/Chirag Shetty and HS Prannoy won three of the five matches in the semifinal match against Denmark as the Indian team qualified for the final of the mega event. Denmark were the favorites heading into this clash, but Team India stunned them.

Fans should note that this event is a 73-year-old tournament, and to date, India had never reached the final before, while Denmark emerged as the champions in 2016. Previously, India beat Malaysia to qualify for the semifinals, and now they are just one step away from capturing a historic Thomas Cup championship.
