Srikanth, Pawar, Sai in 3rd round

Top seed Kidambi Srikanth alongwith other Indian shuttlers Anand Pawar and B Sai Praneeth entered the third round of the Swiss GP Gold badminton championship on Wednesday.

World no. 5 Srikanth, who hogged the limelight last year after winning the China Super Series Premier, defeated Germany’s Dieter Domke 21-10, 21-14 to set up a clash with Denmark’s Emil Holst. The 22-year-old from Andra Pradesh had defeated France’s Lucas Corvee 21-18, 21-10 in the opening round. Anand Pawar, seeded 16th, notched up a moral-boosting 13-21 22-20, 21-16 victory over Malaysia’s Daren Liew in the second round. The 28-year-old, who had beaten Switzerland’s Joel Koenig 21-11 21-13 in the opener, will next take on Japan’s Kazumasa Sakai.

Rising shuttler B Sai Praneeth prevailed over Malaysia’s Beryno Jiann Tze Wong 21-11 21-13.
