"Saina is the best bet, considering the rankings and her form. Sindhu and Srikanth are like underdogs, dark horses of the tournament and anything can be expected from them," said Kashyap.

"I would not say that Manu and Sumit are contenders for a medal since it's a very tough competition and this is the first time that men's double pair has qualified. I hope that they get good a win," he added.
