India thrashed Sri Lanka 3-0 in the women’s team table tennis group match on the first day of competitions in the Commonwealth Games here today. Manika Batra hardly broke a sweat in her 11-3 11-5 11-3 victory over Erandi Warusawithana in the first singles before Sutirtha Mukherjee made it 2-0 up for India with an easy 11-5 11-8 11-4 win against Ishara Manikku Badu.

“It felt really good. We played really well and I’m happy with our performance. I’m confident going into the match (against Wales) this afternoon. We’re all in good shape,” Manika said. Asked about a suspected shoulder injury, she said, “Thankfully I wasn’t injured. I just wanted to stretch out a bit.”
