Since two teams from each of the four groups advance to the quarterfinals, India will be the favourite against two lower-ranked teams in its group matches, in both sections.

However, since the Badminton World Federation (BWF) has not been able to restart the events as per its revised schedule of events owing to the spread of COVID-19, it remains to be seen whether Thomas Cup and Uber Cup will be held in October.
