Praneeth was the first to qualify for final after he defeated the three-time Korea Masters Grand Prix Gold winner Lee Dong-keun 21-6 21-8.

Praneeth comes into the match with head to head record in his favour. He has won four matches against Srikanth out of five. Also, the last encounter between these two, at the Syed Modi Grand Prix Gold, went in Praneeth’s kitty.

However, having won 2014 China Super Series Premier and 2015 India Super Series, Srikanth clearly has a better experience of featuring in the finals. And by the looks of it, he can hold his nerves in this big final. All in all, an exciting match is on the cards and we hope both the shuttlers give their best. (Main Image: Facebook)
