BWF Rankings: PV Sindhu, Kidambi Srikanth static, HS Prannoy regains 12th spot

After recovering from foot warts, Prannoy produced some sensational badminton to reach his maiden quarterfinals of the All England Championship that saw him jump four places and regain the world no. 12 spot in BWF rankings.

After losing the tense semifinal against Akane Yamaguchi at the All England Open, PV Sindhu remains at the third spot in the newly released BWF rankings on Thursday. Whereas, India's top male shuttler Kidambi Srikanth (ranked 2nd) narrowed his gap with the world no. 1 Viktor Axelsen after a pre-quarterfinal finish at Birmingham. The Danish star had pulled out of All England due to an injury.

HS Prannoy's good run at the All England Championship saw him jump four places and regain his world no 12 spot, while men's doubles combo of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty broke into the top 20. Their pre-quarterfinal finish at Birmingham helped Satwik and Chirag improve a place.

After recovering from foot warts, Prannoy produced some sensational badminton to reach his maiden quarterfinals of the All England Championship, while Satwik and Chirag were on the cusp of entering the last eight before a few service errors saw them lose to London Olympics silver-medallist pair of Mathias Boe and Carsten Mogensen.

Former world number one Saina Nehwal, who lost in the opening round, also remains static at the 12th position in the rankings.

However, a first-round exit at All England cost Sai Praneeth dearly as he slipped to 15th spot. Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N Sikki Reddy too improved to 24th place.
