Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the India Open quarter-finals. Commonwealth Games champion Parupalli Kashyap will take on Qiao Bin of China in the quarter-finals of the Men's Singles event, here at the Siri Complex.

Kashyap, who has been struggling to cross the first round ever since recovering from his series of injuries, managed to overcome compatriot Shreyansh Jaiswal 21-19 19-21 21-12 and reach the quarterfinals of a major event.

He will be vying for a spot in the semis and will be bolstered by a vociferous home crowd here. However, Bin will certainly put his best foot forward and give him a stiff challenge.
