Former champion PV Sindhu stormed into the final of Syed Modi India International 2022 after her semi-final opponent Evgeniya Kosetskaya retired hurt after losing the first game on Saturday. Sindhu was dominating her 5th-seeded Russian opponent, winning the opening game 21-11 before the match was interrupted.

The 2017 champion, Sindhu, will face compatriot Malvika Bansod in the summit clash on Sunday.

Despite winning the Olympic bronze medalist in Tokyo last year, Sindhu has been winless on the tour for more than 2 years. The two-time Olympic medalist will be hoping to end that drought on Sunday.

Malvika defeated another Indian, Anupama Upadhyaya, 19-21 21-19 21-7 in a tough three-game contest. The 20-year-old will be looking to create another upset after having defeated former London Olympics bronze medalist Saina Nehwal at India Open in January.

It was expected to be an easy outing for Sindhu going by form, world ranking as well as head-to-head record. Ranked seventh in the BWF rankings, Sindhu had defeated world number 28 Kosetskaya twice before Saturday's tie, and the Indian ace once again came out on top to extend her dominant record against the Russian.
