Tanisha and Ashwini will face the winner of the other semifinal between Taiwanese pair of Sung Shuo Yun and Yu Chien Hui in the final on Sunday.

However, Malvika Bansod couldn't cross the semifinal hurdle in women's singles. She found Thailand's Lalinrat Chaiwan too hot to handle, going down 12-21 14-21. Earlier, Tanisha and Dhruv Kapila lost 18-21 15-21 to second seeds Hee Yong Kai Terry and Tan Wei Han Jessica of Singapore in the last-four round of the mixed doubles event.

Later, the men's doubles pair of Hariharan Amsakarunan and Ruban Kumar Rethinasabapathi also failed to make it to the summit clash, going down 10-21 to 19-21 Chinese Taipei's Lin Bing-Wei and Su Ching Heng.

Tanisha and Ashwini carried on the momentum from Lucknow and overcame all the obstacles that came their way to go deep into the tournament. The semifinal started on an even keel before the Indians stepped up.

A 3-1 lead turned into 6-4 before the Indian duo grabbed a slender 11-10 advantage at the break. But things changed on resumption with Ashwini and Tanisha reeling off four points on the trot twice to leave their opponents far behind.

In the second game, Ashwini and Tanisha came out all guns blazing, galloping to 6-1 and then 11-4 lead at the interval.
The Dutch duo found the gap too much to bridge as the Indians closed out the match comfortably.
