Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty made light work of China's He Ji Ting and Ren Xiang Yu to reach the semifinal of the Malaysia Open Super 1000 in Kuala Lumpur.

Satwik-Chirag won the match 21-11, 21-8 in 35 minutes.

In the opening game, the second-seeded Indian pair claimed a massive 13-6 lead despite defending against the agile Chinese shuttlers. Satwik and Chirag drew benefits from He and Ren's mistakes as they rushed for points.

While Chirag moved to the front court, Satwik sent a high lift from the rear court to create a space for himself before finishing the game with a deft whip from the net, leaving the Chinese duo on the same side.
