​Hello, and welcome to our live coverage of the Badminton World Championship third round match between PV Sindhu and Sung Hi Hyun.

PV Sindhu has a tough opponent to deal with in the third round, in the form of ninth-seeded Sung Hi Hyun from South Korea​ as she seeks a quarter-final berth. 

Sindhu leads the Korean 7-5 in their head-to-head encounters, but it is Sung who had the last laugh in their most recent meeting at the Badminton Asia Championships, where she dwarfed the lanky Sindhu in straight games.

Sung knows how to mix offense with defense, and will definitely aim to dismantle the hard-hitting Sindhu's aggressive game on Thursday.

Sindhu, on the other hand, will be looking to use her height to her advantage, in order to get a superior reach on the court. It will be an interesting battle, and with Saina Nehwal already making it to the quarters, it now remains to be seen whether Sindhu can do the same.
