Parupalli Kashyap Harsheel Dani reach prequarters at China Masters Grand Prix

Harsheel Dani, who is slated to face China's Sun Feixiang later in the day, is now the only Indian in the men's singles draw of the $150,000 Grand Prix Gold badminton event. On the other hand, Bin displayed some quality game and outplayed Kashyap 10-21 to win the first game. In their first meeting on the badminton court, Kashyap hit back from defeat in the first game to edge the second one 22-20, but could not sustain his intensity in the decider.

The tournament was Kashyap's return to competitive badminton after recovering from a shoulder injury which he sustained during a Premier League in January. The 30-year-old had got a bye in the first round and faced world No 59 Avihingsanon, whom he had lost to in their only previous encounter, in round two.

He will play China's Bin Qiao, seeded third in the next round.

Parupalli Kashyap beat Suppanyu Avihingsanon of Thailand 21-16, 21-17 in the first round of the China Masters, in his first major global tournament after four injury setbacks.

However, it was curtains for Sai Uttejitha Rao Chukka and Sri Krishna Priya Kudaravalli in the women's singles.
