Former champion Kidambi Srikanth will lead the Indian challenge at the Syed Modi International 2023 that got underway in Lucknow, India, on Tuesday (November 28). The Super 300 event, which will continue till Sunday (December 3), saw the withdrawals of HS Prannoy and Lakshya Sen earlier in the week.

Defending women's singles champion PV Sindhu had already announced her decision to pull out of the event following her knee injury.

In their absence, the 2016 winner Srikanth will be joined by the likes of B. Sai Praneeth and Sameer Verma in the men's singles draw. Seeded sixth, Srikanth begins his title quest against the 36th-ranked Chia Hao Lee.

Sai faces a difficult proposition in the opener as he has been drawn against second seed Kenta Nishimoto. Sameer Verma takes on Chinese Taipei veteran Wang Tzu Wei.

Priyanshu Rajawat, Kiran George, Mithun Manjunath, and Meiraba Luwang Maisnam are some of the other Indian names in the men's singles draw.

The women's singles draw at the Syed Modi International 2023 will see India's rising stars making their mark. Aakarshi Kashyap, Malvika Bansod, Ashmita Chaliha, Unnati Hooda, and Tasnim Mir are some of the shuttlers to keep an eye on.

In women's doubles, Commonwealth Games bronze medalists Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand are seeded fourth while Tanisha Crasto and Ashwini Ponnappa are seeded seventh.

In the mixed doubles section, the home pairs of Ashwini Ponnappa/Rohan Kapoor and Sikki Reddy/Sumeeth Reddy, have already made winning starts.
