India’s young prodigy from the sport of badminton, Lakshya Sen has continued his impressive form as he has now become the first Indian male shuttler to qualify for the finals of iconic All England Open 2022. The 20-year-old was up against defending champion Lee Zii Jia of Malaysia on Saturday and although the odds were against him, Lakshya produced a sensational performance to win the match 21-13, 12-21, 21-19 in a thrilling contest.

The victory meant that Lakshya Sen has now defeated opponents like 2021 Olympic champion Viktor Axelsen, 2021 Olympic bronze medal winner Anthony Ginting, 2021 World champion Loh Kean Yew and 2021 World bronze medalist Anders Antonsen in last few months.

As expected, the Indian fans went berserk on social media following Sen’s incredible win in England. While some hailed him as ‘SENsational’ Lakshya, others opined that he could be the male version of PV Sindhu in the making. The netizens were quick to point out that it is indeed a huge moment for Badminton India with the youngster taking giant strides at the global level.

Check out the reactions:

In the final on March 20, he will be up against the winner of other semi-final clash between Viktor Axelsen (World No.1) and Chou Tien Chen (World No.4). If Lakshya Sen can clinch the title, it would be a historic occasion for the country which will be remembered for ages. The fans would be hoping that the youngster can go on and complete the well-deserved triumph on Sunday, but there is no doubt that it won’t be any easy task against a quality opponent, irrespective of who is up against.
