Indian shuttler Kidambi Srikanth continued his rampaging run by marching into the Australian Open Super Series men's singles final with a comprehensive 21-10, 21-14 win over fourth-seed Shi Yuqi of China.

Defending champion and London Olympics bronze medallist Saina Nehwal will play sixth-seeded Sun Yu of China in another women's singles quarterfinal match later in the day. Praneeth narrowed the gap to 12-13, before Srikanth zoomed ahead to seal the match.

Srikanth was locked in tough battle in the opening game but managed to edge past Praneeth.

Praneeth pulled away with four consecutive points after that point, but Srikanth again fought back to take a 20-17 lead, before the former drew level again, to take the game into a tie-breaker. The Indian erased the deficit to held the match point at 20-19 but the Chinese Taipei shuttler sealed it with two good points.
