New Delhi:

Curtains were drawn on India's campaign at the Yonex All England Super Series following the pre-quarterfinal defeat of mixed doubles pair of V Diju and Jwala Gutta.

The Indian team squandered a first game lead to go down 23-21, 20-22, 14-21 against second seeded Korean pair of Yong Dae Lee and Hyo Jung Lee in London, on Thursday.

The Indian pair, world number 14, rode on their smashes but were outdone by the Koreans in the net play after a 48-minute gruelling battle.

The Indian duo earned 32 smash points against 31 of the Koreans. But they could manage just eight net winners against 10 of their world number three rivals.
