We expect that we will have attendance on all 14 days, including the New Year's day", the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said.

In the opening game, Sindhu took a 6-2 lead and continued her march ahead. Capitalising on a couple of unforced errors from Tai, the 2016 Olympic silver medallist, urged on by a vociferous and sizeable Indian crowd, equalised 18-all. She used her reach to catch the shuttle early and placed it in hard positions to narrow the deficit to 6-7.

Tai, who had a healthy 7-3 advantage in career head-to-head records coming into this match against Sindhu, dominated the Indian from the beginning. But a string of errors and a flawless display by Tai lead to Sindhu losing 5 straight points and the match itself.

Tai held the edge for much of the first game before Sindhu rallied to tie it at 18, only for the Taiwanese to rattle off the final three points.
