That's it from here as we have had a hat-trick of mixed days for Indian fans. While Sindhu remained unbeaten in yet another masterclass show against Akane Yamaguchi, Kidambi Srikanth remained winless in the group stages going down fighting in a three-game match against Shi Yuqi.

In the biggest upset of the day, World No 1 and defending champion Tai Tzu Ying failed to make the cut despite winning her match against Sung Ji Hyun. 

Join us tomorrow for the semi-final action at the Dubai World Superseries where the top shuttlers in the world fight it out against each other to enter Sunday's summit clash.
