CHN vs HYD : 3-4 Ouseph saves the day for Hyderabad
Mens Singles is a forte for Chennai Smashers – Hunters however played tenacious Rajiv Ouseph to counter Tanonsak which worked well for them. If only the Hunters had chosen Sameer Verma instead of Sai Praneet, they might have whitewashed the Men’s Singles. Smasher Sugiarto instead got an easy opponent in Sai Praneet pulling back one match for Chennai.
Malayasian pair of Kiong Tan and Heing Tan won as expected. Marin came back super strong to avenge her Dubai Superseries defeat to win the match against PV Sindhu in a 3 setter. Both teams won their trump matches with the Adcocks taking Chennai to respectable score of 4-3 from the tie.
Hyderabad surely saved face at home by playing Rajiv Ouseph.
