Hello, and welcome to our coverage of the Badminton World Championships, as Kidambi Srikanth gets ready to face off against Daren Liew of Malaysia.

Kidambi Srikanth has a relatively easier task, compared to the women, at least in terms of his opponent's ranking. In pursuit of his first ever medal from this mega event, Srikanth takes on the 38th ranked Daren Liew of Malaysia. However, the sixth seed cannot be complacent for he has a losing 0-2 record against Liew.

It needs to be noted that the 25-year-old suffered those losses when he was an upcoming player while the Malaysian was at the prime of his career and was seeded in those two tournaments, where they clashed.

Although he has not been very successful in this tournament so far, Srikanth can be expected to turn the tide against Liew, in this encounter, as he goes looking for his maiden Malaysian Open title.
