Lakshya Sen could not usurp Prakash Padukone’s record at Nationals, but has potential to be the best

The 24-year-old Srikanth, on his part, had experienced some trouble in his own quarter-final against Shubham Prajapati, but had come through at 21-17, 23-21. The semi-final was touted to be a classic ‘veteran versus youth’ clash, pitting the top players of the two most well-known badminton nurseries of talent in the country — the Hyderabad-based Pullela Gopichand Badminton Academy (PGBA) and the Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy (PPBA), based in Bengaluru.

In the event, the heavily favoured Srikanth won in a matter of 36 minutes, at 21-16, 21-18 after remaining on the attack throughout the encounter. He trailed until the three-quarter mark in the second game, in which Sen defended dourly and forced his redoubtable adversary into errors.
