Good evening and welcome to the Sportskeeda Liveblog of the Welsh International women's doubles final. After parting ways with Jwala Gutta, India's doubles ace Ashwini Ponnappa has quickly found success with her new partner N Sikki Reddy.

The duo has made it to the final in just their second outing together and will hope to take the title. But they need to be careful as the opponents won't be easy. Russians Chervyakova and Morozova are the top seeds and are certainly the favourites for the title.
