In Badminton, India's new doubles sensation Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy yesterday pulled out of the upcoming World Championship owing to injuries. The Indian duo became the first men's doubles pair from the country to win a BWF Super 500 title last Sunday, helping them break into the top 10 ranking. However, injuries dashed their hopes of a good performance at the upcoming prestigious tournament, scheduled to begin from Monday in Basel, Switzerland. 

In the Thailand Open, Chirag and Satwik emerged victorious from a draw that saw the participation of nine of the top-10 world ranked pairs. The Indian pair defeated reigning Asian Games silver medallists Fazar Alfian and Muhammad Rian Ardianto in the second round, before beating former world champions Ko Sung Hyun and Shin Baek Cheol in the semifinals.

They came up trumps against reigning world champions Li Jun Hui and Liu Yu Chen in the summit clash.
