Murgunde-Meenakshi out of doubles

September 20, 2006 16:35 IST

India's Trupti Murgunde and B R Meenakshi were a mismatch for the Chinese combination of Yawen Zhang and Yili Wie as they were handed a drubbing in the second round of women's doubles at the World Badminton Championships in Madrid.

The Indian pair bowed out after being packed off 2-21, 7-21 in just 15 minutes by the Chinese girls on Tuesday.

Murgunde, the only Indian player left in the singles fray, will take on Japanese Eriko Hirose on Wednesday.

The other women's doubles pair of Jwala Gutta and Shruti Kurian, who reached the pre-quarter-finals after the Korean Hyo Jung Lee and Kyung Won Lee gave them a walkover in the second round, will face Kumiko Ogura and Reiko Shiota.

Gutta and Kurian will be playing their first match in the championship as they were given a bye in the first round.

In men's doubles, Rupesh Kumar and Thomas Sanave will take on Albertus Susanto Njoto and Yohan Hadikusomo Wiratama of Hong Kong.
