BWF World Championship, Day 5 Schedule: The fifth day of the Championship will see a host of Indian shuttlers in action, including two-time Olympic medallist PV Sindhu and Kidambi Srikanth.
Srikanth will kickstart the proceedings for India as he takes on Chinese Lu Guangzu for a place in the quarterfinals.
PV Sindhu, then, will be in action as she faces a tough competition against ninth seed Pornpawee Chochuwong of Thailand. Sindhu has failed to beat the Thai shuttler in their past two meetings and will be aiming to break the streak as she eyes a second-successive World Championship title.
