Top THREE players of the tournament so far in PBL
Super trump for Awadhe. She has been used as Trump in two matches and as predicted she has won both of them getting 4 important points for Awadhe Warriors.
Two matches, two wins, one used as a trump. Clever strategy from Chennai smashers by picking her as trump once, hence not exhausting the trump as Awadhe did with Saina. Sindhu dominated the matches especially against PC Thulasi from Delhi Acers. Badminton lovers will be anxiously waiting for her match against Saina!!
By far the surprise of the tournament. Chinese junior champion, 22 year old who has won the hearts of many Indian Badminton fans. Two wins against Supanida Katethong and Han Li who are ranked higher than her and gave Saina a tough match. Yet to play against Sindhu; that will be a thriller match for sure!!
The six foot tall Russian is standing tall in the PBL 2016 tournament so far. Playing for Mumbai Rockets, he has played the maximum number of matches (6) and has won maximum number of points. He has also become Mumbai’s go to guy for doubles and mixed doubles.
Top ace of the Delhi Acers. He won all of his three matches even surprising Lee Chong Wei in the process. One of the two undefeated players in PBL after playing three matches.
Captain of the Mumbai Rockets and the top performer with 5 points in three matches along with Vladimir Ivanov in Men’s Doubles. He has the most points per matches’ ratio after Saina Nehwal. He is also undefeated in Men’s Doubles.
