Najib hails 'great' Chong Wei for 'amazing win'

Chong Wei did fight back in the opening game and ran his opponent close but Srikanth managed to pocket the first game and then regained the lead at 9-8 in the second game with a flurry of jump smashes and looked the better player.

He said he will not be back at another Commonwealths, and when asked if he would go for gold in 2020, Lee replied: "I don't know, year to year I will play first because now I'm very scared of injuries". In the second half, the Malaysian, who had bagged the gold in men's singles and mixed team events in Melbourne 2006 and New Delhi 2010, used his decade-long experience to outsmart Srikanth and take the summit clash to a thrilling decider.

Lee was on a completely different level in the next game.

In the overall head-to-head record, Srikanth now trails Chong Wei 1-5. But Srikanth took the first game in just 25 minutes.

Srikanth's strategy against Chong Wei was to keep the rallies short and find the lines with his strength being the smashes.
