A total of 16 teams will participate in the Mixed Teams event with all teams divided into four groups of four each. India is in the first group along with Australia, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
In the mixed team event, each match will have five ties, namely: men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles. Teams that win more than 3 matches in the match will be judged to win.
