Their withdrawal may have taken the sheen off the championships which began with 17 entries -- Uganda and Jersey had withdrawn citing the same reason as Ghana and Guyana.

Meanwhile, Wales and South Africa were the first two teams to arrive here while Australia, England and Malaysia are expected to reach in the wee hours of Tuesday.

The Indian team members, who returned from Geelong after their participation in the ITTF World Tour Platinum Australian Open, will be arriving on Tuesday morning.
