Star Sports 1, HD, Hotstar & BWF YouTube to show World Badminton C'ship from 330pm today

MUMBAI: The World Badminton Championships 2017 are scheduled to be telecast live from Monday (21 August) at 3:30 pm India time from Glasgow in Scotland on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD. Simultaneously, it will be live-streamed on Star India's Hotstar and YouTube. The BWF championships will conclude on Sunday (27 August). 

The BWF World Championships is held every year except for the year of an Olympic Games. It is a showcase of the very best in the sport and it determines who are the World Champions in each of the five disciplines, men?s and women?s singles, men?s and women?s doubles and mixed doubles. The championships is an individual event and each Member Association is invited to enter their players through the world ranking qualification. For each event, the joint third place winner gets a bronze medal, the runner-up silver and the winner is awarded a gold medal and title ?World Champion?.

Since Prakash Padukone's bronze medal in 1983, India never won a medal in men's section at the world championships. Srikanth, who has been handed a comparatively easier draw among the four, will start his championships campaign against Russia's Sergey Sirant.

Ajay Jayaram, B Sai Praneeth, Kidambi Srikanth, and Sameer Verma will represent India in men?s singles while PV Sindhu, Rituparna Das, Saina Nehwal and Tanvi Lad will participate in women?s singles. Three teams -- Satwiksairaj Rankireddy/Chirag Shetty, Manu Attri/Sumeeth Reddy and Arjun MR/Shlok Ramchandran will represent the country in men?s doubles. Ashwini Ponnappa/Sikki Reddy, Sanjana Santosh/Arathi Sara Sunil and Meghana Jakkampudi/Poorvisha S Ram would play in women?s Doubles.

Four Indian teams of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy/K Maneesha, Ashwini Ponnappa/Sumeeth Reddy, Prajakta Sawant/Yogendran Krishnan and Pranaav Jerry Chopra/Sikki Reddy would play in the mixed doubles event.

India?s hopes for medals depend on Australian Open and Indonesian champion Kidambi Srikanth, and Olympic medallists Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu. The mixed doubles team of Sikki Reddy and Pranav Jerry Chopra could probably win too.
