In the Hong Kong Open badminton tournament, ace Indian shuttler Kidambi Srikanth will face Lee Cheuk-Yiu of Hong Kong in the Men's Singles semifinals today.

Lee stunned former badminton world number one Viktor Axelsen 21-14, 21-19 to storm into the semi-finals yesterday. Earlier, Srikanth entered the semifinals of the men's singles event after fifth seed Chen Long of China decided to quit the contest owing to an injury.

Unseeded Srikanth, ranked 13th in the world, was leading by a game when Long decided to concede the match. Srikanth pocketed the first game 21-13 in just 15 minutes when the world no. 4 Long hung up his racket to put an end to the contest.
