BWF World Tour Finals — Kidambi Srikanth’s poor show continues

India shuttler Kidambi Srikanth bowed out of the ongoing BWF World Tour Finals after losing his third match of the tournament to Hong Kong’s Angus Ng Ka Long on Friday.

Angus defeated Srikanth 21-12, 18-21, 19-21 in the thrilling match which lasted for 65 minutes. The Indian shuttler scummed to the defeat in a similar fashion as he did in his first two games. Srikanth won the opening set but lost the last two in a draining three-game tie to bow out of the tournament. In the first set, Srikanth registered a comfortable win over Angus but the Indian shuttler lost the last two sets despite fighting hard and taking the game down to the wire.

In the second game, Wang dominated the proceeding and bagged the set (9-21) quite comfortably. The Taiwanese badminton player maintained dominance in the game and took a three-point lead in the decider and eventually sealed the match.

In his first encounter of World Tour Finals earlier this week, Srikanth had a similar outing as he was defeated by Denmark’s Anders Antonsen.

The entire match lasted for one hour and 17 minutes. Srikanth came out all guns blazing in the first game and he did not give his opponent any chance, wrapping up the game 21-15 inside 22 minutes.

In the second game, Antonsen managed to change his fortunes around. With the winning momentum on his side, Antonsen capitalised in the third game and he walked away with a victory in the match.
