Indian shuttlers overtake China to create a new Record

After World No. 23 HS Prannoy clinched the US Open Grand Prix Gold title on Sunday, Indian shuttlers have created a unique record, making the 2017 massive for Indian badminton.

India now has seven players in the men’s singles category in the latest Badminton World Federation (BWF) World Rankings released on July 27.

Moreover, 11 Indians found their way in “Top 100”, which is really outstanding for Indian badminton.

That has enabled the country to overshadow established badminton powerhouses like China, Denmark, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Indonesia, who have ruled the sport for decades. While the giants China have six players inside the top 50, Denmark has one less. Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Indonesia all have four representatives each in that elite bracket.

Prannoy jumps Six Places, Kashyap back in top 50

US Open win guaranteed him a rise of six places from his previous ranking of 23rd and now leaves him just five spots shy of his career-best ranking of 12th that he achieved in 2015.

With this incredible rise, HS Prannoy sits comfortably at 3rd position among Indians.  Srikanth Kidambi and Ajay Jayaram are ahead of him at 8th and 16th respectively. Singapore Champion  Sai Praneeth drops to 19th position following his flop show in recent tournaments.

The latest rankings brought delight for the other star of last week – Parupalli Kashyap, as well. The Commonwealth Games gold medallist had a remarkable run to the final, upsetting the top seed and defending champion Lee Hyun II on the way.

The massive effort rewarded the 30-year-old a 12-place jump to put him back inside the top 50 at 47th.
