Hyderabad: On a high after back-to-back wins, Awadhe Warriors, led by star shuttler P V Sindhu, would look to enhance their semi-final chances when they square off against Pune Pistons in the Indian Badminton League (IBL) today.

The Warriors remained in contention for a semi-final berth by defeating Mumbai Masters 3-2 in Bangalore yesterday. They had earlier trounced Krrish Delhi Smashers. The Lucknow-based outfit have 12 points from four ties with two wins and as many losses and need to win their last tie to book a berth in the knockouts.

It will be Sindhu’s first match at home in the tournament and she will surely get the backing from a partisan Hyderabad crowd. The world championships bronze medallist would be high on confidence after prevailing over seasoned Tine Baun in an enticing three-gamer on Saturday. Another player from Andhra Pradesh in the Warriors’ side, K Srikkanth would also like perform well in front of his home fans. Srikkanth has already displayed his abundant talent in IBL and earlier as well.
