Singapore City: Kidambi Srikanth and Sai Praneeth set up an exciting all-Indian men's singles final at the Singapore Open Super Series badminton tournament after comfortably winning their semifinal clashes here on Saturday.
Srikanth, a former world No.3, notched up a 21-13, 21-14 win over world No. 26 Anthony Sinisuka Ginting to reach the third Super Series final of his career.

Earlier, Praneeth, who had been laid low by a shoulder injury, continued his rampaging return to the court by thrashing three-time Korea Masters Grand Prix Gold winner Lee Dong Keun 21-6, 21-8 in a lop-sided first semifinal.
Praneeth executed his plans brilliantly to completely outplay his opponent in a 38-minute match.
Srikanth then showed why he is considered to be one of the best Indian shuttlers right now, fighting back from 4-9 down in the opening game to never look back.
Interestingly, Praneeth has a 4-1 head-to-head record against his more illustrious compatriot, who had clinched the 2014 China Super Series Premier and 2015 India Super Series and also reached the quarterfinals of Rio Olympics.
