Third seeded Harsh Chouhan made amends for his earlier unexpected loss in the boys Under- 19 singles to an unseeded Siddhesh Mudbhatkal, by out playing Kairan Kapadia to enter the mens singles semifinals of t

he Mumbai Suburban District Badminton Championships, played at Celebration Club complex, Lokhandwala.

Harsh went all out right from the toss of the shuttle giving Kairan Kapadia no chance whatsoever to display his skills before pocketing the game 21- 9, 21- 14.

In another match, fourth seeded Anmol Behrani was at his aggressive best while quelling the spirited challenge of seasoned stalwart Sandeep Dhillon 21- 7, 21- 15.

But to Sandeeps credit, who was away from the badminton scene for quite sometime, he gave tough time to his younger opponent before bowing out.

Others to make the last four grade were unseeded Sachin Kshatriya, who surprised top seeded Akshat Patil and second seeded Arijit Bose, who packed off Ateet Mhambre in straight games.
