GOLD COAST: India's Satwik Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty stormed into the badminton men's doubles semi-finals with a 21-14, 15-21, 21-9 win over Malaysia's Peng Soon Chan and Soon Huat Goh, at the 21st Commonwealth Games here on Friday.

Satwik and Chirag started strongly in the opening game which lasted for 15 minutes but lost focus in the second game, as the Malaysian duo squared it 1-1 in 19 minutes.

In the decider, the Indians bounced back strongly and stifled the opponent's point-scoring opportunities to close the game and match in 17 minutes.

In the semi-final on Saturday, the Indians will be up the winner between Sri Lanka's Sachin Dias and Buwaneka Goonethilleka, and Canada's Jason Ho-Shue and Nyl Yakura.
