P V Sindhu & Carolina Marin embark in this epic 52-shot rally to kick-start the Premier Badminton League – PBL campaign in style.

Marin eventually won the game 11-8, 12-14, 11-2 and reversed the Dubai loss to Sindhu. The game, however, had some brilliant moments for which the local crowd had packed the stadium. The main highlight of the game which set the tempo for the rest of the tournament was the 52 shot rally which saw the top two players of badminton bring out their lethal combos.
One of the stronger suits of the Spanish champion has been her net play and this game too showed why she has bettered Sindhu on more occasions than her. Sindhu, nonetheless, having lost steam after the 52 shot rally tried to cling on but could not.
Now What I want is that Saina to regain full fitness and fight it out with Marin and others. We will have two world class players then in Badminton.
