The duo, who had a 1-1 head-to-head record having played each other at the 2014 German Open last time, engaged in fast-paced rallies and Prannoy more often sealed the rallies with his powerful smashes.
The former All England champion came up with the suggestion during the sixth meeting of the All India Council of Sports (AICS) chaired by Vijay Kumar Malhotra.
After limping out of the court with a calf injury in October in 2015, it was the first final for Kashyap in 21 months, while Prannoy, who has always been plagued by injuries,also reached his first summit clash after clinching the Swiss Open last year.
Srikanth's earnings are more than double of those of Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei, who trails at second place with $71,300, while China’s Lin Dan is third with $69,795.
The third seeded men`s doubles pair of Manu-Sumeeth moved past Japanese seventh seeds Hiroki Okamura and Masayuki Onodera 21-18, 22-20 in 43 minutes.
Kashyap crossed the second round after his opponent Hungary's Gergely Krausz retired midway in the second game with the scoreline reading 21-18 17-6 in favour of the Indian.
On a comeback trail after recovering from a shoulder injury, Kashyap dished out a gritty performance to stave off the challenge from World No. 15 Lee 21-16 10-21 21-19 in a match that lasted an hour and three minutes.
A former National champion, Sameer was then forced to withdraw from last week's Canada Open after failing to get visa on time.
Jwala Gutta may not be in the league of Saina Nehwal or PV Sindhu but in her own right, has been a bit of a trailblazer.
Kashyap will meet Japan's Koki Watanabe, while Prannoy will square off against Scotland's Kieran Merrilees.
Interestingly, Commonwealth Games champion Parupalli Kashyap, HS Prannoy and N Sikki Reddy had to request the Ministry of External Affairs and Sports Ministry to receive their passports on time to travel to Canada.
Sindhu’s coach P Gopichand received the Coach of the Year award while Milkha Singh was given the Living Legend of the Year award.
Sindhu is currently preparing for the BWF World Championships, which is scheduled to be held from August 21–27 in Glasgow, Scotland.
The Indian, currently ranked 5th in the world, has previously won bronze medals at the Championship in 2013 and 2014.
Ever since the emergence of a certain Saina Nehwal, women's singles has dominated with the gutsy Haryana-born shuttler winning titles galore. And P V Sindhu's meteoric rise only added to the supremacy that the women shuttlers enjoyed.
