Indian star Kidambi Srikanth had to remain satisfied with the silver medal after losing to an inspired Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia in the men's singles badminton final at the 21st Commonwealth Games (CWG) here on Sunday. Despite the silver, the Indian shuttler had several positives to take from the sporting extravaganza with his gold-winning performance against the Malaysian in the team event being the highlight.

The 35-year-old veteran beat the Indian, who is 10 years his junior, 19-21, 21-14, 21-14 at the Carrara Sports Hall.

Chong Wei has won all four of his BWF matches against Srikanth, but it tells you little of how close and how clashes between these two can go.
