India's star shuttler HS Prannoy has returned to the top 15 in the latest BWF World Rankings released on Tuesday after a string of impressive performances in the past few months.

The last time the Indian shuttler was in the top 15 was in October 2018. The former World No.8 has been a force to be reckoned with the international circuit recently.

The young star Lakshya Sen continued to be the top-ranked Indian at the ninth position in the men's rankings, while Kidambi Srikanth rose a rung to 11th.

Commonwealth Games in Birmingham a few months ago.

London Olympics bronze medallist Saina Nehwal moved one place to be in the 31st spot in the new rankings for women.

In terms of the doubles rankings, India did have a few movers as well. The men's doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty remained static at the eighth spot in the new rankings. Rankireddy and Shetty have been in top form by claiming their first-ever gold at the Commonwealth Games and claiming a bronze at the World Championships.
