SAI PRANEETH AND KIDAMBI SRIKANTH, both unseeded shuttlers from India will battle it out for the Singapore Super Series title on Sunday.
Praneeth has been showing great winning run in this tournament beating the likes of Qiao Bin (China), Tanongsak (Thailand) and finally Lee Dong Keun (Korea) to set up a clash against his compatriot. The semi-final clash was the most comfortable of all, winning it in style, 21-6, 21-8.
On the other hand, Srikanth too had tough opponents whom he overcame, Mustofa (Indoneisa), Shi Yuqi (China) and then the young Indonesian star in the SF, Anthony Ginting against whom he had an easy outing 21-13, 21-14.
The head-to-head count between these two favours Praneeth 4-2, the last meeting was in January at the India Grand Prix Gold, where he won the match. This is a new day and a new tournament and anything can happen but looking at the run that Praneeth is enjoying at the moment, expect a cracker of a match to enjoy your Easter Sunday.
No matter what, one thing is clear, both the winner's and runners up trophy will be brought back to India!
