Jakarta, CNN Indonesia —
The coaching team decided to field Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Marcus Fernaldi Gideon, Gregoria Mariska Tunjung, Anthony Ginting, Greysia Polii/Apriyani Rahayu, and Praveen Jordan/Melati Daeva.
Based on the BWF rankings, this is the best lineup of players that Indonesia has in five numbers.
Kevin / Marcus will duel against Aaron Chia / Soh Wooi Yik. Kevin/Marcus lead 7-1 head to head over Aaron/Soh but lost in the last duel at the Olympics.
Gregoria meets Kisona Selvaduray. These two players have beaten each other in the previous two encounters but the last duel between the two players took place in 2018.
Ginting will meet Lee Zii Jia. Ginting has a good record because he has always emerged victorious in the previous three meetings against Lee Zii Jia.
Greysia/Apriyani will meet Pearly Tan/Thinaah Muralitharan. Greysia/Apriyani also always recorded in the two previous meetings.
Meanwhile, in the mixed doubles, Praveen/Melati met Hoo Pang Ron/Cheah Yee see. If the match lasts until the fifth party, the duel in the Sudirman Cup quarter-finals will be the first duel in their career.
