The badminton train is now stopping at the beautiful Basel in Switzerland for the Swiss Open Super 300, starting on Tuesday. The finals will be played on March 24. The Indian contingent will be looking for a strong showing, with Lakshya Sen and PV Sindhu spearheading the team, with the Paris Olympics fast approaching.

World no. 1 Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty gave the tournament a miss.

Lakshya will be looking to continue his good form after finishing as a semifinalist in the French Open and the All England Open respectively. His place at the Paris Olympics is almost certain. But he will be motivated to claim his first World Tour title of the year here.

Sindhu, who lost in the second round of All England Open, will look to reclaim the Swiss Open that she won in 2022.

Former world no.1 Kidambi Srikanth will be looking at the event as a chance to get back into form after his disappointing performance in the recently concluded All England Open.
