Srikanth had an easy outing in his earlier match, as he recorded a routine victory over youngster Aryaman Tandon. After a slightly slow start, the six-time Super Series title winner picked up the pace and took the first game 21-14. The second game saw Srikanth take the match comfortably, as it finished 21-13.

Prajapati comes into the match off the back of a two-game win over Bodhit Joshi, where he took the first game narrowly at 21-19, before winning the second 21-16.
