Welcome to Sportstar’s coverage of the fifth season of the Premier Badminton League!
We are all ready for the final duel in Chennai, where the home team – Chennai Superstarz – will play against defending champion Bengaluru Raptors in the southern derby.
Here’s a summary of yesterday’s exciting relationship between North Eastern Warriors and Awadhe Warriors
We saw a tie that lasted until the last game. With the gripping performances of Cristinna Pedersen, Ko Sung Hyun and Subhankar Dey, they achieved a highly competitive 4: 3 success.
For NE Warriors, Bodin Isara and Kim Ha Na fell short at the start, but Bodin seemed to be having a good time on the bench cheering on his comrades. But the star of the night for the team must be 19-year-old Krishna Prasad Garaga, who almost overtook his team in the men’s doubles game.
