Defending champion Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty on Thursday pulled out of the India Open Super 750 after the previous suffered a hip harm.

“Satwik pulled his left hip adductor, so determined to concede the match,” Chirag told PTI.

Earlier, the Badminton Association of India (BAI) had said in an update that Satwik had suffered a groin injury.

The world No. 5 Indian pair was scheduled to take on China’s Liu Yu Chen and Ou Xuan Yi, who had claimed the BWF World Tour Finals in December last year, in the round of 16.

Satwik and Chirag had claimed a semi-final finish at the Malaysia Open Super 1000 tournament in Kuala Lumpur last week.

The pair broke new ground in 2022, winning two World tour titles — the India Open Super 500 and French Open Super 750 -, securing the Commonwealth Games gold, anchoring India’s epic Thomas Cup triumph, and bagging a maiden bronze at the World Championships.
