Jwala-Ashwini, Kashyap move up in international ranking
New Delhi: Owing to their good performances in the Sudirman Cup in China, India`s women`s doubles pair of Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa zoomed to 22nd place, while P Kashyap moved to the 23rd spot in the latest BWF ranking released on Thursday.
The Commonwealth Games gold medallist pair jumped 10 places, courtesy their superb win over then world number eight Thai pair of Duanganong Aroonkesorn and Kunchala Voravichitchaikul in the second Group C tie in Qingdao.
Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Kashyap too gained five places after beating world No. 4 Boonsak Ponsana in a men`s singles match against Thailand in Sudirman Cup.
However, India`s top shuttler Saina Nehwal`s brilliant win over current world number two Xin Wang in the Sudirman Cup didn`t have any bearing on her ranking as she remains static at number four spot.
