The Badminton World Federation (BWF) on Friday announced the draw for the Thomas Cup and Uber Cup, in which defending champions India have been placed in Group C along with last year's runners-up and 14-time champions Indonesia in the Thomas Cup competition. India have been placed in Group A along with 15-time champions China for the Uber Cup, the top world championship of women's team badminton. The BWF took to X (formerly Twitter) to announce the groups. “Thomas Cup Group C: Indonesia, India, Thailand, England,” BWF said.

Last year, India won its first Thomas Cup title by defeating Indonesia 3-0 in the final. This tournament was started in 1949.

The Thomas Cup is the top world championship in men's badminton competition.

“Draw-BWF Uber Cup Finals 2024 #TeamIndia has been placed in Group A. Group A China India Canada Singapore #ThomasUberCupFinals,” tweeted the official handle of the Badminton Association of India (BAI).

India's best Uber Cup performance is bronze medals in the 2014 and 2016 editions of the tournament in New Delhi and Kunshan respectively.

India were eliminated from the Uber Cup last year after losing 3-0 to Thailand in the quarter-finals. Both the tournaments will be held from April 28 to March 5 this year.
