Akshay Sharma thrives in home conditions, takes halfway lead

Chandigarh, Dec 04 (UNI) Local favourite Akshay Sharma, who is riding on the confidence of his win on the PGTI last month, came up with yet another top-notch performance, a four-under-68 in testing conditions at the Chandigarh Golf Club, to take the halfway lead at the Jeev Milkha Singh Invitational 2020 Presented by TAKE Sports.
Thirty-year-old Akshay, thriving in home conditions, took his tournament tally to nine-under-135 to gain one spot from his overnight tied second at the Rs. 1.5 crore event.
Noida’s Amardeep Malik and Gurugram-based Veer Ahlawat shot scores of 68 for the second day in succession to be one off the lead in tied second.

Bangkok, Jan 22 (UNI) Ace Indian shuttlers PV Sindhu and Sameer Verma crashed out of the Toyota Thailand Open Super 1000 while Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Ashwini Ponnappa entered the mixed doubles semifinals, here on Friday.
Olympic silver medallist Sindhu bowed out of the badminton tournament after a 21-13, 21-9 loss to local favourite Ratchanok Intanon in the quarter-finals,
'I think I made a lot of unforced errors and gave away easy points. I didn't play my best, it wasn't my day. Intanon is a great player and I was prepared for that. I was responding to all her strokes, but I was making mistakes. If I had won the first game, I think things would have been comparatively different,” Sindhu said after the game.
