Parupalli Kashyap

A walkover was given to Kisona Selvaduray of Malaysia, who was to play her first-round match of the Thailand Open against Nehwal on Tuesday.

The World Champion shuttler returned to training last month with the start of the national camp for eight Olympic-bound athletes at the Pullela Gopichand Badminton Academy in Hyderabad.

The IOC Coaches Lifetime Achievement Awards came into the forefront three years ago to recognise coaches who have dedicated their lives to training athletes for the Olympic Games.

The Indian pair won the first game quite comprehensively and they carried on with their winning momentum to wrap up the match in about 39 minutes.

Kashyap had registered an easy 21-16, 21-16 win over Lu Chia Hung of Chinese Taipei in the second round of the tournament. He is the lone Indian to stay alive in the competition.

Nehwal will face Japanese Sayaka Takahashi, Srikanth will play against Khosit Phetpradab. While Kashyap will face Chou Tien Chen and Pranoy will play against Kenta Nishimoto. All the matches will take place on August 1.
