Indian shuttlers have a great chance of winning a medal at next month's World Championship provided they play consistently well throughout the prestigious tournament, feels Kidambi Srikanth, who won back-to-back titles at Indonesia and Australia.

Three Indians - Srikanth, B Sai Praneeth and Ajay Jayaram - qualified in men's singles category for the BWF's World Championship slated to be held at Glasgow from August 21-27.

"I think we all are playing well. I can't really say if we will definitely win a medal. We have a chance for sure but we have to be 100 per cent on that day and every match," Srikanth told reporters on the sidelines of a felicitation program by Sports Minister Vijay Goel.

"We have to play consistently well, because it is such a big tournament and everyone prepares really hard."
