What a day for India!!!!! Both the Indian men - HS Prannoy and Srikanth Kidambi - defeated higher ranked opponents to enter the semi-finals!!!!! Prannoy's win, especially, was stunning as he beat the Olympic champion Chen Long. And what a terrific match that was!

Here's hoping the Indian men can keep on flying the Indian Tricolour high in Indonesia till the end.
