    Zhang Jike and Ma Lin knocked out in last 64 round by India!

    India may not have had the best of fortunes in the Men's team event at the Asian Championships 2012 as they finished 8th in the championships. India's star player Sharath Kamel Achanta lost three matches in the team event which included Noshad Alamiyan, Huang Sheng-Sheng and Chen Chien-An. Kamel was sad and down as he and his team were out on the second day. However determined as ever, in the Men's doubles Kamel and his compatriot Saha produced the win of their lifes!
