Sindhu started the game brightly, holding a 5-2 lead early in the first game. The Indian shuttler then defeated Thailand's Nitchaon Jindapol in a closely-contested 22-20, 21-17 second round match. Okuhara then displayed improved net play to win two points to take the match to a decider. Trailing 4-8 in the second, Sindhu wiped off the deficit with a sixpoint burst and surged into lead at 13-11.
When Sindhu was leading 18-16, they played a 56-shot rally with Sindhu eventually winning the point, which was the turning point of the match.
Okahura came back with a couple of points, but Sindhu races into the lead again, keeping Okahura at the base line. While the World Championships final, a 110-minute epic battle, stands out among all with an extraordinary 73-shot rally being the highlight, Sunday's encounter too was equally engrossing. Also the third game was close just like the World Championships, this time I took it off.
