Final score: Lee def Srikanth 19-21, 21-14, 21-14
...
But, this was a great effort from Srikanth nonetheless! He had never been into a CWG final before! And in his first appearance in the final, he managed to take a game off the legendary Lee and display his fiery attack!

That will surely stand him in good stead for the rest of the season.
...
Age is just a number! A legend remains a legend forever! What a show that was from the great Lee Chong Wei!

From the second game, we got to see a very different Lee Chong Wei....the champion in him awoke. He gave Srikanth absolutely no chance after that!

Salute to the great Malaysian!

It was a wonderful embrace at the net between the two after the match.
