Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of Malaysia Open. In men's singles, World No. 4 Kidambi Srikanth has been handed a relatively easy draw with the likes of Viktor Axelson, Lee Chong Wei, Lin Dan and Shi Yuqi all on the other half.

Srikanth begins his campaign against former World No. 2 Jan O Jorgensen. If he gets past that hurdle, in the second round could have met countryman B Sai Praneeth but the latter crashed out on the opening day.

The freshly crowned World No. 4 Kidambi Srikant is the obvious favourite for this match. But the going might get difficult for the Indian because he is faced with an experienced opponent in former World No. 2 Jorgensen. The battle between the two should be sight to watch and it is really difficult to predict in whose favour the shuttle cocks would swing before it begins.
