TOKYO, JAPAN: India's captain Shiv-Prakash Misra is staying positive ahead of Sunday's reverse singles despite Somdev Devvarman's right shoulder injury which could force him out of the rest of the weekend.

The Indian team thankfully pulled off a win in the doubles to lead 2-1 in the tie, but a question mark remains over Sunday's line-up.

Misra also shares his impression of Japan's Yuichi Sugita with Gallagher, after Sugita, who turns 23 years old on Sunday, defeated Devvarman in Friday's opening rubber and put in a solid performance in the doubles.
