HYDERABAD: Saina Nehwal, Kidambi Srikanth and men’s doubles team of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty bowed out of the Thailand Open BWF Super-1000 tournament in Bangkok on Thursday.
While Saina lost to Busanan Ongbamrungphan of Thailand in three games 23-21, 14-21, 16-21, Srikanth pulled out of the event with a calf muscle strain.
“Very sad to let you all know that I have been advised to pull out of the Thailand Open due to calf muscle strain. I am hoping to be fit by next week for the next round of Thailand leg,” tweeted Srikanth.

Srikanth will have to get fit in five days.
Meanwhile, Saina played well in the first game before losing way in the next two. She saved a couple of game points to win the first game. But in the second game, the Indian was outplayed by the local shuttler. Though she fought hard in the third, Busanan gave no chance for the Indian. This is the fourth victory in seven meetings for the Thai against the Indian veteran.
Earlier, Satwik and Chirag went down to second seeds Mohammad Ahsan and Hendra Setiawan in straight games 19-21, 17-21. Chirag said that they could have won the match. “I feel it was a match we could have won. We messed it up in the end. We were up 19-18 in the first game, and the last time we played in Malaysia also we were 20-19 up, and it’s a matter of a few points in the crucial moments, and they being experienced took it away from us,” Chirag told the BWF website.
Satwik felt that they could have played better. “They were waiting for our mistakes. It’s been many months (since competition), I feel we could’ve played better at 19-all or 19-18, it will take time. We need to calm down at that stage,” Satwik said.
Results (Rd II)
Men’s singles: 8-Zii Jia Lee (Mas) w/o Kidambi Srikanth.
Men’s doubles: 2-Md Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan (Ina) bt Satwiksairaj Rankireddy/Chirag Shetty 21-19, 21-17.

The former leg-spinner was admitted to a private hospital. Earlier, his wife had said that he was recovering. “Chandra is recovering very well, and he will be back home in two days,” his wife Sandhya Chandrasekhar Bhagwath stated in a release to the media.
She added that Chandrasekhar was fine and was watching the Australia-India Test match when he suddenly complained of fatigue and slurring in speech. “So we took him to the hospital,” she said.
According to her, the 75-year-old complained of “tiredness and fatigue” on Friday evening and his speech became a “little bit slurred”.
“There is no problem. It’s not a life-threatening thing. Please convey to fans that Chandra is very much stable. He has a very strong willpower,” Sandhya said.
The former India leg-spinner, who made his debut for India in January 1961, scalped 242 wickets in 58 Test matches he played. He picked 16 five-wicket hauls during his 15-year-old long career. He played his last Test in 1979.
