The Second game was a neck to neck affair, as Srikanth was crawling back for a fightback in the second game till the scores tied at 11-11. But, after the interval, Tien-chen won staright away five points to surge still ahead of Srikanth. Although managed scoring couple of points, the Taipei shuttler did not give the Indian any more chance to make a comeback, by again bagging four more successive points to seal the match in his favour.

It is noteable that Srikanth had earlier beaten the Taipei player at the Hong Kong Open 2015 and has a 1-0 head to head before this tournament.
