    Thought this started at half 6...just tuned in and saw the line up! Is Pitchford injured or something?? I don't understand why he wouldn't be playing two singles!

    Indeed not the right move.
    Pitchford should get 2 single wins.
    doubles is a 50-50 chance and they lost that one.

    Singapore could make it 2-0.

    I take that back...Evans clearly knew something as Liam looked pretty poor and Drinkhall's looking solid. Still not sure how the last one will go if it gets there though.

    this new format, doubles is so crucial

    Totally agree!!! England men have done the Same thing and it's going to cost England a chance to play for the gold medal!!!! Feel so sorry for Paul Drinkhall !!! He's been brilliant!!!!! Liam will have to take a long hard look at himself!!!! As will the England coach !!!! Terrible line up !!!! I would of picked Jarvis as the third player!!!

    Yeah, it's clear that the pressure is on Sam.

    England looked a different team in the bronze medal match. With Drinkhall and Jarvis playing the doubles, Pitchford seemed to be released to play singles again, and convincingly beat Aruna. It was a very good win. It seems clear that Paul should be the go-to player for doubles.

    A massive mistake yesterday!!!! Cost us a chance of going for gold!!!!! You don't change a winning formula!!!! I would like to hear Evans thought's on why he picked Walker!!! Jarvis has had a brilliant year !!!! Plus taking Drinkhall out of the doubles was a massive mistake!!!!

    Agreed...Liam definitely didn't look at his best. His table tennis wasn't on form...but he also looked quite dishevelled and physically worn out (bags under his eyes etc).

    It's clear it was related to something about Pitchford on that day.

    Nigeria lacked in all areas vs England but India put on a masterclass vs Singapore.

    Great day.

    In case you haven’t seen it, an outstanding performance from Drinkhall in singles quarters to take out Aruna.

    To my mind Drinkhall is playing the best TT of his career and is the best UK player right now by some margin.

    If you haven’t seen it then we’ll worth a watch!

    Drinkhall played really well. That said, Quadri hasn't looked good for a while now. Hoping he returns to form at some point on the tour.

    Good luck with the England vs India matchups tomorrow!
