The prestigious BWF World Championships 2022 is all set to begin from August 21 in Tokyo, Japan. Badminton stars like Saina Nehwal, Viktor Axelsen, Kento Momota, and Tai Tzu Ying will compete in the BWF top-flight event. However, India’s most successful shuttler at the event, PV Sindhu, will not be playing in the event. Sindhu suffered a stress fracture at the Commonwealth Games, which ruled her out of the World Championships.
Therefore, shuttlers like Lakshya Sen and Kidambi Srikanth will headline the action. Lakshya Sen and Kidambi Srikanth finished on the podium last year as they won bronze and silver medals respectively. Both Sen and Srikanth will look to repeat their heroics from last year’s World Championships. Veteran player Saina Nehwal has her task cut out as she will face former World Champion Nozomi Okuhara as early as the second round.
