Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar on Sunday congratulated Indian shuttler Kidambi Srikanth for his Australian Open Superseries men's title victory.
"Heartiest congratulations to @srikidambi on winning 2nd successive superseries title. Proud of you champion! #AustralianSS," Tendulkar wrote on his twitter account.
Srikanth displayed a committed gameplay in his dominating run to outclass Olympic champion Cheng Long of China 22-20, 21-16 in the final in Sydney.
The Australian Open Superseries saw a change in odds for the Indian after he had lost five times in a row earlier to Long.
The 24-year-old player won the second superseries title in a matter of one week after a victory in the Indonesian Open.
