Yuki Bhambri did not drop a game en route to a crushing straight sets 6-0 6-0 win over Jeetendra Pariyar to seal the issue in India's favour, after Sanam Singh posted a comfortable 6-0 6-1 victory over Abhishek Bastola at the Yeorumul Tennis Courts. (Day 1 Wrap)

In the inconsequential doubles tie, the Indian duo of Divij Sharan and Saketh Myneni registered a comfortable straight sets 6-0 6-0 win over Santosh Khatri and Sonam Dawa, thrashing their opponents in only 35 minutes.

The sixth-seeded Indians will face top-seeds Kazakhstan in their last-eight match.

Kazakhstan defeated Hong Kong in their second round match 3-0. Yuki needed just 37 minutes to polish off his hapless opponent while Sanam 40 minutes to see off Bastola, giving India an easy win.
