In a hard fought three setter, second seeded Kashyap overcame Thailand’s Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk 21-19 14-21 21-17.

Kashyap was trailing 13-17 in the first set, but caught up and raced to win 21-19. After winning the close first set, Kashyap lost focus and gave up the second game 14-21 to the 14th seeded Thai player. In this game Tanongsak made sure he led from the beginning to the end of the game.  In the final game, after the scores were even at 6 each, Kashyap switched gears and made sure he kept the lead from then on and went on to win the game and the match.

Congratulations on this Kashyap. On behalf of the Badminton In India team, we wish you all the best for your future also.
