Hyderabad Hunters Clinch The PBL 2017-18 Winners Title After Defeating Bengaluru Blasters

Written by Archit Chawla

After 22 days of breathtaking action, it is time to announce the winners of Premier Badminton League 2018 and it’s Hyderabad Hunters. India’s local boy Satwiksairaj Rankireddy have progressed a lot when one sees his performances in the last edition of Badminton Premier League as he and Indonesia’s Pia Zebadiah Bernadeth put up a dominant display in the last match of the clash, the Mixed Doubles, to clinch the title and the winners’ prize for the Hyderabad Hunters. Cheered on by a packed house and a all pumped up team, they beat Kim Sa Rang (Korea) and N Sikki Reddy (India) in straight sets 15-11, 15-12. The tall Satwiksairaj unleashed an array of powerful smashes to set up a well-deserved victory for the home side and enable the Hunters to win their maiden title in PBL 2017-18.

The Blasters were 2-1 (3-2) on points at the midway stage talking about the final battle with the Bengaluru’s fierce side. But former World No. 1 Marin promptly took the initiative for the Hunters, and gave them the women’s singles match against Scotland’s Kirsty Gilmour 15-8, 15-14. Marin played a smart and controlled game and got her match back from a major scare when Kirsty had fought back from 4-8 down to make it 11-9 at one stage fearlessly. Here is the glimpse at the coach Fernando.

The team over all managed to pull this feat together and gave a great show to the audiences worthy of finals. The final match of PBL 2017-18 was played at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium, Hyderabad.
