Kaushik loses after three of the five judges rule in the Aussie’s favour. It was a close, close bout, though. The Indian should hold his head high.

Badminton: Saina Nehwal in a serious spot of bother. After winning the first game, she loses the next one 18-21 against Scotland’s Kirsty Gilmour. The ace Indian shuttler looked tired and erratic in the second game, she’ll need a big effort now if she wants to play the final.
