While World No 9 Saina is a past winner in 2015, World No 5 Sindhu will be aiming for her maiden India Open Superseries title.

Challenging them for the crown will be World No 4 women's player Carolina Marin of Spain and defending champion Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand.

With the qualifying round starting on Tuesday, Indian hopes will be resting on Sourabh Verma, Siril Verma and former Junior World No 1 Aditya Joshi in the men's section. In the women's section, Arundhati Panthawane and PC Thulasi will spearhead the Indian challenge.

The $325,000 tournament, which has over the years gained great prominence on the international calendar, promises to be a grander affair with the prize money hiked by $25,000 from last year.

"Badminton as a sport has grown in stature in India. There are so many players coming up through the ranks and that is a testimony to the initiative taken by the BAI to nurture players at the grassroots level. And as always the tournament promises to enthral the Indian fans with some high-octane badminton action as every year," BAI president Akhilesh Das Gupta said.
