After returning to the match in the Sindhu, it was Hyderabad’s fifth defeat against world champions in 9 outings. This year, two shuttleers have met four times and have 2-2 records.
However, unlike the recently held World Badminton Championships and Korea Open Super Series Finals, this second round match did not last till its billing.
It is so difficult that this competition was formerly between Indus and Nozomi, that it was only for the second time in nine games, which was not decided for the third game of the encounter. The first game was very close, and instead of the leadership of two girls, the league was the biggest player of the regular.
Under 16-18, suddenly Nozomi did not find anything to win five straight points and to remove the game from the Indus, which was similar to what he did in the World Championship in Glasgow last month.
