While World No.3 Sindhu bounced from losing the opening set to complete a memorable comeback over Busanan Ongbamrungphan of Thailand, the eighth-ranked Srikanth overcame an opponent from the same country after losing the second set.

Sindhu defeated Busanan 21-23, 21-13, 21-18 in the second round women’s singles encounter that lasted over an hour. It was the Thai shuttler, who had begun well taking a lead in the opening exchanges and although Sindhu bounced back to level terms, Busanan held on to clinch the first set.

In the second set, Sindhu rallied hard and took the game into the decider before prevailing in the third game to seal the victory.

It was a similar contest in the men’s singles, where Srikanth somehow managed to scrape through to the next round after defeating the 31st ranked Suppanyu Avihingsanon of Thailand 21-12 15-21 24-22.

The seventh-seeded Indian faced little trouble in winning the first set, but Avihingsanon came back in the second set to take the game into the decider.

In the men’s doubles, Mannu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy stood little chance against Chen Hung Ling and Wang Chi-Lin losing 9-21 10-21 to bow out.
