Lakshya, who had reached the finals at Senior National Championship in February, defeated Michal 20-22 21-18 21-15 in a men's singles match that lasted an hour and 10 minutes.

The Uttarakhand shuttler, who turned 16 today, will next take on Sri Lanka's Dinuka Karunaratna in the semifinals tomorrow.
