New Delhi: Ace shuttler Parupalli Kashyap, who won the men`s single title at the Syed Modi International India Grand Prix Gold Sunday, jumped six places to reach his career-best ranking of 14th in the Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings released Thursday.

The 26-year-old won his maiden tier-three event in Lucknow Sunday.

P.V. Sindhu, who lost in the women`s singles final of the Syed Modi tournament, also reached her career-best ranking of 19, jumping five places.

However, India`s badminton queen Saina Nehwal, who retired in Lucknow in controversial circumstances, will end the year as the third best in the world.
