The win proved sweet for Lee, the three-time Olympic silver medallist, who had won their previous four encounters before falling to Srikanth in the singles match of the mixed team final on Monday. "This is going to be my last Games and I think winning against the new World No. 1 was a good feeling".

Recently crowned Worlds' No.1 badminton player, Kidambi Srikanth is all set to take the stage against two-time CWG Champion, Lee Chong Wei.

Leading 9-5 in the decider, Lee went for a change of racquet and it only got him better results as he grabbed an 11-5 lead to take the psychological upper hand. A smash into Lee's body gave Srikanth the lead at 16-15 before the Malaysian drew level yet again with a superb placement. That turned out to be the only bit of celebration that Srikanth and his Indian fans among the sell-out crowd will manage on the day.

"After this year finishes I will see in the second year and if I can keep fit, I will play in Tokyo 2020".

Srikanth was 0-4 down at the start of the first game before making a comeback in eight minutes to take 11-9 lead at mid-game interval, after which Lee worked hard to equalise. The Malaysian continued his domination in the third and final game, opening up an early lead. Lee continued to plunder points as will before closing off the game by a comfortable margin to seal the title.
