It's been a rather disconcerting first day for India at the 2016 Bonny China Masters GP Gold. Apparently, someone goofed up big-time on the travel arrangements from Singapore to Jiangsu, China. It seems the team was forced to fly back to India from Singapore and then fly out again to China. Instead of a five-hour flight and an early arrival on Sunday afternoon, the team hit the venue very late on Monday. And that meant the lead Men's Singles players were forced to play barely a few hours after touching down in Jiangsu. That didn't go very well for Kidambi Srikanth who crumbled against Lin Yu Hsien in just half an hour. So tired was the Indian that he lost 8 consecutive points in Game 1 (12-13 all the way to 12-21) and another 7 consecutive points in Game 2. HS Prannoy fared better - he fought back from 10-19 to 18-19 before losing Game 1 - and had to dig extra deep to finally overcome Soong Joo Ven. Parupalli Kashyap did not play (and he is out of the Olympics run as well). Nor did Sameer Verma. The entries in the other disciplines (WS, WD and MD) have had plenty of rest as they were not required to play on Day 1.
