Perfect Start for kidambi Srikanth at World Badminton Championship

Perfect Start for kidambi Srikanth at World Badminton Championship

The highest-ranked Indian male shuttler kidambi Srikanth started his campaign at the World Badminton Championship with a comprehensive straight games victory over unseeded Sergey of Russia in Glasgow on Monday.

The Russian was no match for the red-hot Indian as the eighth seed won the first-round match 21-13, 21-12 in just 28 minutes to enter the next stage.

Kidambi Srikanth wasn’t too troubled by his Russian opponent. He led all the games and never once did the match look likely to reach the third game, such was the dominace the number eight seed exhibited throughout the match.

The in-form Srikanth started the contest in a rampaging manner and with a blink of eyes took a 6-1 lead in the first game, before going into the break at 11-6. Soon the lead widened to 15-7, but Sergey won few consecutive points to reduce the gap but it was too little too late. Srikanth pocketed the game 21-13.

 The second game saw both the players exchanging points in the initial stage to remain at 2-2, but Srikanth soon made it 9-2 and took the break at 11-5.

Srikanth maintained a healthy six-point lead as he raced to 15-9, before sealing the game 21-12 and along with it the match.
Kidambi Srikanth, who is the highest seeded Indian male in the World Badminton Championships, will take on either France’s Lucas Corvee or Chinese Taipei’s Lin Yu Hsien in the second round of the tournament
