Kidambi Srikanth was at his grittiest best as he shocked World No. 1 Son Wan Ho 21-15, 18-21, 24-22 for a place in the final of the Indonesian Super Series Premier badminton tournament here Saturday.

Srikanth fought like a man possessed to outclass Son Wan Ho 21-15, 18-21, 24-22 in an energy-sapping mens singles match that lasted an hour and 12 minutes here.

In the second game too, the Indian was in control till 6-4 following which Son Wan Ho started injecting pace and power into his game thus making life hard for the Indian.

The Indian continued to lead for the rest of the game and won it in 19 minutes after Sakai saved two game points.

The deciding game saw both the players exchange the lead but Son edged ahead as Srikanth failed to capitalise on a couple of short lifts from Son.

The final will be held on Sunday.

After winning the first game, it looked like Srikanth would win the match in straight games but the World No. 1 showed why is he the top shuttler in the men's singles. Earlier, Prannoy lost his semi-final match. He won the China Open in 2014 and India Open in 2015 before losing to compatriot B Sai Praneeth in the final of the Singapore Open earlier this year. "I don't want to focus too much on rankings, but If I play like this consistently, I can be number one", he added. The Korean jumped out to 13-10 after the break only to see Srikanth's powerful smashes helping the Indian to come back for 14-14.

Prannoy secured quarterfinals after trashing the defending champion Lee Chong Wei from Malaysia in the qualifying round.
