On the fifth day of the BWF World Championship, we will see Indian two-times Olympics winner PV Sindhu and Kidambi Srikant.
Kidambi will start the game against the Chinese Lu Guangzu for a place in the quarterfinals.
PV Sindhu will face tough competition against the Pornpawee Chochuwong of Thailand. In the past two meetings with Tai Tzu-Ying, Sindhu failed to beat her. Now, she will be aiming to break the streak as she eyes a second-successive World Championship title.
Later the day, the women’s doubles pair of Ashwini Ponappa and N.Sikki Reddy will be in action followed by India’s men’s doubles pair of Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy. For India’s final action of the day, Lakshya Sen will meet Guatemala’s Kevin Cordon.
