Kidambi Srikanth. Leading the head-to-head record 5-2, Praneeth was constantly the preferred in the match and he showed simply that by beating the world No. 3 in straight games.Unable to deal

is understood to be a sluggish starter, started the match on the attack and got the first point of the match.He took the shuttles early and sought to remain on his powerful strokes and led the first video game 8-6 at the break.However, Praneeth made his way into the game with clever strokes and extraordinary anticipation and with Srikanth making a wave of unforced mistakes, he took a 12-8 lead.Srikanth did aim to pick up at 10-12 however Praneeth closed down the game with 3 straight points at 15-10.< img src = align=center alt="PBL picture"title="PBL photo"> Praneeth started the 2nd video game with his self-confidence on a whole various level and Srikanth was totally down the

With the win, they caused additional misery on Awadhe and took Hyderabad to

an enormous success sending their group into frenzy. Hyderabad will next play Bengaluru Blasters in the house on January 11.
