The 17-year-old Pardeshi was much superior on the net and it helped her register a 21-17, 21-18 win over the eighth seed opponent at the Siri Fort Sports Complex here. She will now face M Aruna of Pondicherry.PV Sindhu

"It is undoubtedly one of my biggest victories so far. This will give me a lot of confidence going ahead and I will try my best to go as far as possible in this competition from hereafter," Shriyanshi said after the match.

Defending champion Kashyap, who had skipped the team event due to injury, said: "It was an easy match today. I am getting better with my fitness and was keen on playing."

The top seed further added, "It is not always that you get to defend your national title, so am looking forward to put up a good show."
