Kidambi Srikanth vs Lee Chong Wei

Commonwealth Games 2018: Badminton Men's Singles final - Kidambi Srikanth vs Lee Chong Wei - Telecast, live streaming, date, start time and where to watch online

The Commonwealth Games gold rush, where Srikanth also partook to help win the team medal for India in Australia's Gold Coast, also endorses India's rise in a game that greatly tests physical stamina and skill sets.

Lee was on his brilliant best at the start of the game and scored four points in succession with masterful strokes.

Srikanth had beaten Lee in the mixed team championships final earlier in the Games but the former world number one rallied for a 19-21 21-14 21-14 triumph on Sunday for his third individual CWG gold.

Lee eventually gathered pace and made it all square at 19-19, but that was it for the Malaysian in the first game as Kidambi clinched the round 21-19.

After an exposition of exhilarating badminton matches throughout Saturday morning, the Indian contingent has secured three medals in the bag, with a riveting line up for the 2018 Commonwealth Games finale on Sunday.

Syrians gather along the streets of Damascus to condemn the air strikes
The United States, France and Britain acted morally and responsibly by striking Bashar Assad's chemical weapons program in Syria. It added that "we have every reason to believe that the attack on Syria was meant to hamper the work of the OPCW inspectors".

Srikanth, who has repeatedly troubled his opponents with hard cross-court smashes in this CWG, was unable to execute the same against Chong Wei and could only claim a Silver. A smash into Lee's body gave Srikanth the lead at 16-15 before the Malaysian drew level yet again with a superb placement.

Nehwal, 28, a poster girl of Indian sport, saw off her rival 21-18, 23-21 and said the gold was up there with her London 2012 Olympic bronze and her number one world ranking in 2015. That turned out to be the only bit of celebration that Srikanth and his Indian fans among the sell-out crowd will manage on the day.

But the Malaysian was a different player in the second game. Srikanth was 0-4 down at the start of the first game before making a comeback in eight minutes to take 11-9 lead at mid-game interval, after which Lee worked hard to equalise.

Climbing up the ladder, Srikanth went on to reducing the deficit before eventually taking the lead for the first. In a close fought encounter, both Kidambi and Lee were breathing heavily on the neck of each other, hardly allowing an inch of space to gather points.
