Kidambi Srikanth stuns by winning his third Super Series title and the first Indonesian Series

Kidambi Srikanth, ace Indian shuttler, has on Sunday made another feather to his cap of Super Series titles by winning Indonesia Super Series. He defeated Japan's Kazumasa Sakai 21-11, 21-19 to win the title.

This is Srikanth's third Super Series title after notching victories in the 2014 China Open and the 2015 India Open.

Srikanth had earlier kept his nerve as he clinched a 21-15, 14-21, 24-22 win over second-seed Son Wan Ho of Korea in a 73-minute semi-final clash to enter the summit showdown. Sakai, on the other hand, had booked his place in the finals after defeating India's H.S. Prannoy 21-17, 26-28, 18-21 in his last-four clash that lasted for one hour and sixteen minutes.

After the win, he is getting as many congratulatory messages from his fans on Twitter.

This is Srikanth's second consecutive Super Series Final and fourth overall with the 22nd ranked Indian reaching the summit showdown of the Singapore Open back in April, when he lost to his fellow countryman B Sai Praneeth.
