Sydney: Commonwealth Games champion shuttler P Kashyap set up a clash with World No. 1 Korean Son Wan Ho in the main draw of the Australian Super Series here on Tuesday after coming through qualifiers with two wins on the trot.

Kashyap, who is trying to comeback after losing a lot of time due to a series of injuries, saw off China's Zhao Junpeng 21-15 21-18 in the opening round before disposing Indonesia Super Series Premier runners-up Japan's Kazumasa Sakai 21-5 21-16 in the second men's singles match.

HS Prannoy, who defeated Olympic silver medallist Lee Chong Wei and Rio gold medallist Chen Long in Indonesia Open last week, got a direct entry into the main draw and he will take on England's Rajiv Ouseph.

Young Siril Verma also made it to the main draw after brushing aside Indonesia's Yehezkiel Fritz Mainaky 21-9 21-9 and then defeating compatriot Shreyansh Jaiswal 21-16 21-15.

In women's singles qualifying round, Ruthvika Shivani Gadde beat Australia's Sylvina Kurniawan 21-15 21-15 and then dumped another local player Ruwindi Serasinghe 21-9 21-7 to make it to the main draw.

Shivani will face China's Chen Xiaoxin on Wednesday.

Top Indian shuttlers such as Saina Nehwal, P V Sindhu, Sai Praneeth will start their campaign tomorrow.
