Niluka! You beat the world # 8 TAGO who hails from a family who's name has been in the world of badminton since the 1970's. You never let him take control over you in the second game. You have beaten him in style. We are proud of you. Keep up the good work.

Brilliant! Beating the World No.8 is probably the best ever achievement by a Sri Lankan badminton player.
It would be a herculean task for Dinuka to grab a medal ....... but best of luck, we're very proud of you!!
