Meiraba triumphs at Yonex Sunrise All-India Junior Badminton Tournament

HSB / New Delhi

Maisnam Meiraba continued his dominance in the junior circuit while both Tanisha Crasto and Aditi Bhatt capped a memorable campaign with twin titles at the Yonex-Sunrise Krishna Khaitan All India Junior Badminton Tournament at Panchkula (Haryana) on Sunday.

This was the first of the selection tournaments for the BWF World Junior Championships to be held in Kazan, Russia from October 7-13. The second selection tournament is scheduled for next week in Bangalore.

Junior World No. 15 Maisnam Meiraba Luwang, top seeded at this tournament, was unstoppable in his 21-12, 21-11 demolition of second seed Sathish Kumar K.

The in-form Manipur shuttler, who won the White Night Junior last month, was challenged only once in six matches this week, where he dropped a game to eighth seed Sarath D in the quarter-finals.

In girls’ singles, sixth seed Aditi Bhatt showed steely nerves and resilience in her 22-20, 13-21, 22-20 marathon win over the top seed Unnati Bisht that needed 1 hour 18 minutes to complete. This was the second consecutive three-game match that the feisty girl played following her 21-15, 14-21, 21-16 win over seventh seed Aashi Rawat in the semi-finals.’

Bhatt made it a double delight when she teamed up with Goa’s Tanisha Crasto to take the girls’ doubles title as well. The second seeds stormed back from a slow start to eke out a 17-21, 21-19, 21-17 win over seventh seeds Khushi Gupta and Drithi Yatheesh.

Crasto found success in the mixed doubles category as well, where she partnered Ishaan Bhatnagar to outlast Dhruv Rawat and Trisha Hegde 20-22, 21-16, 21-13.

In boys’ doubles, the title went to fifth seeds Iman Sonowal of Assam and Yash Raikwar of Madhya Pradesh in yet another surprising result of the day. The boys put up a brilliant performance to upset the top seeds Manjit Singh Khwairakpam and Dingku Singh Konthoujam 21-12, 21-15.
