    Astounding performance, our young superstar defeated one of the brightest guy of the next crop, Kantapon W. (THA) and that too in a marathon match. Great to know he's endurance is getting better.
    also Mithun Manjunath def the Malaysian rising star.

    Mithun manjunath seems to me as a bright prospect for the Indian MS future. He defeated zii jia lee quite comfortably.

    Just watched Lakshya Sen's recent match with Lin Dan- A 3 set marathon which he went down fighting to the champ. The way he deceived mighty Lin Dan many times says a lot about his potential. (Lin Dan had his revenge too-deceived Lakshya more)

    But If you manage to force mighty Dan to throw and break his racket out of frustration at being deceived in a rally-you are simply great.

    Well, srikanth was also touted as the next best thing after sliced bread ... So I would be wary of talking up lakshya Sen too quickly

    Lakshya Sen is a good player and one to watch for the future. His match against Lin Dan will give Lakshya a lot of confidence. This is his first year on the senior circuit, he still hasn't played Super 500 or above tournaments.
    Lakshya is returning from a shoulder injury which kept him out of action for 3 months.

    We are watching Lakshya's first transition from junior to senior player, over the next 3 years as he gains time on the circuit, he will continue to learn and adapt. The first step is building fitness levels to match older players. Until he turns 19, fitness will be a major factor in beating older players. His second transition will be from age 19 onwards as he develops as a senior player. This will be the most exciting phase and determine if Lakshya can translate his potential into solid performances.

    Link: https://www.ibtimes.co.in/exclusive...n-dan-good-experience-says-vimal-kumar-768345
    Excerpt:
    Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy chief coach Vimal Kumar lauded Lakshya Sen for his valiant effort in the second round of the ongoing World Tour Super 300 tournament — New Zealand Open against Lin Dan on Thursday, May 3.

    Lakshya though could have had better chances of winning the match if he had been more patient during the rallies against the two-time Olympic champion, according to the former national badminton champion.

    In what was being touted as one of the biggest matches of his budding career, 16-year-old Sen, a former junior world number one, stretched the Super Dan before going down 21-15, 15-21, 21-12 in an hour and seven minutes at the North Shore Events Centre in Auckland.

    Sen, who had recently recovered from a shoulder injury, was impressive with an aggressive approach. However, as Kumar pointed out, the world number 108 failed to engage the Chinese great in longer rallies before going for the kill.

    The world number 10 took control of the match in the second and third games, tiring Sen in the process. Dan eased past the finish line by maintaining a comfortable lead throughout the deciding game.

    "It was a good performance. He played well. But he was little impatient. I thought that was one of the reasons [for the defeat]. He definitely needs to work on his fitness aspect. There is no doubt about it,"

    The former national chief coach added: "You cannot just take quick points from Lin Dan. But he played well, I thought if he had rallied little more and then attacked, he could have a better chance. Straightaway, if you attack, you don't have much of a chance against Lin."

    "Anyway, it's a good experience for him. The more matches he plays like this, he will definitely get better

    "He is still growing, we are looking at building his muscle endurance and such things. He has also just come out of a shoulder injury. He has developed a hard smash and has been practicing it a lot. That, to a certain extent contributed to the shoulder injury. But now he has come out of it.

    "But to play at his big level, it's basically all about patience. Also, the shuttles appeared very slow. In those conditions, he should have had more patience."

    Kumar also stressed that it is important for budding shuttlers like Sen to not get carried away by small results. The 55-year-old though said he likes the Uttarakhand shuttler's temperament when it comes to dealing with attention at the nascent stage of his senior career.

    Sen, unlike many other budding talents, has made a decent progression from the junior to senior level. In his first year at the senior level (2017), he won International Series events in Bulgaria and Hyderabad and finished as the runner-up at Tata Open.

    "It's basically about your temperament. At this phase, a lot of them get carried away rather than working on specifics. So it's all about, you know, how you manage yourself. Not getting too carried away with small results is important. To remain grounded and then be focussed on the job," Kumar said.

    "That way, I like his temperament to a certain extent. That's one of his big plus factors. The attention will be there but he has cope with that.
    He needs to improve his fitness level to play at that level. That, I think can be improved. With more matches at this level under his belt, he can also get better tactically.

    "It is a very tough phase of his career. At 16, 17 he needs to establish at the top level. I think, with the right mix of tournaments, he can get better."

    Sen will be heading to Sydney where he will be taking on higher-ranked Lee Cheuk Yiu of Hong Kong in the first round of Australia Open, starting May 8.

    India's top junior shuttlers found overage, BAI to take stringent action

    Top junior shuttlers like Lakshya Sen, Aakarshi Kashyap, Dhruv Kapila have been found overage.

    The Badminton Association of India (BAI) will take strict measures to check the menace of age fraud in the junior category. This comes after the BAI, in its circular last year, had asked all the age-group players who have not registered their date of birth within 12 months from their birth to undergo medical examinations.

    In a confidential report of the results of the examination, a copy of which is with Sportskeeda, it has been clearly stated that Lakshya Sen, Swaran Raj, Sai Pawan Kari among others have been found overage. It has been further learnt that the likes of Aakarshi Kashyap and Dhruv Kapila have also been found overage.

    Lakshya is currently the junior World No.10 and has been named in India's squad for the Thomas Cup. Aakarshi is ranked 11th in the junior World Rankings while Dhruv (Junior World No. 5 in Men's Doubles) is one of India's most promising doubles players.

    Mr Ajay Singhania, General Secretary of the BAI, told Sportskeeda, "Those who have not registered their date of birth within 12 months from their birth will definitely undergo medical tests. From the reports we already have in hand, the ones who have been found overage, we will take action strict action against them."

    "We have to take a decision on Lakshya Sen, Aakarshi Kashyap, Dhruv Kapila...there are a few other names on the list. But some problems are arising regarding this, we will be taking a decision on this soon," he added.

    Sanjay Mishra, the chief coach of the junior national team, said, "The association has become much more strict now and they are taking action, a new committee has been formed just to tackle age fraud. But the problem is we cannot determine which information is authentic and which is not. There will be a meeting regarding this."

    He also explained how the association are making preparations so that there are no let-offs. "Last time, we had penalised the players who were found overage but they went to court. Now, our president has decided that we must take proper preparation before taking any actions. Even if they go to court, we will be prepared," Mishra said.

    When asked what kind of punishments could be meted out, he said, "You see, it's not the players who are guilty. They are kids. It's the coaches and the parents who do this. So, our primary objective is not to put an end to their careers. Instead, we will ask them to play in their age categories and if, after that, there are still violations, strict measures will be taken."

    There is some sensationalism involved in the article and when a title is in quotes it implies different meanings. So far Lakshya Sen, Akarshi Kashyap have not been found overage.

    BAI has unveiled a policy where players who have not applied for birth certificates within one year of their birth will need to undergo age testing.

    The age tests are controversial as they are not accurate and conclusive that an individual is overage. Hence these tests are not admissible in a court of law.

    Indeed. I saw a video of Rising Stars about him being interviewed . He was 12 years old and it was taken in 2014. Lemme post that video. He was shy and very polite.
