Indian shuttler H S Prannoy continued his giant killing spree at the Indonesia Open Superseries by stunning Chinese Chen Long in the quarterfinals on Friday. Meanwhile, it was a double delight for Indian badminton fans as Kidambi Srikanth also made it to the last four by overcoming Tzu Wei Wang in straight games. 

H S Prannoy had earlier upset World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia in straight games to storm into the men's singles quarterfinals but India suffered a huge setback in women's event with both Saina Nehwal and P V Sindhu crashing out of the Indonesia Super Series Premier.
