BADMINTON- Carolina Marin on Friday proved why she is Rio Olympic Gold medallist as she took Hyderabad Hunters to the final of the Premier Badminton League on Friday.

Marin came back from one set down to win 12-15, 15-10, 15-9 against DelhiDashers' Sung Ji Hyun.

“Frankly, I wasn’t at my best in the first game and there was pressure because I knew that if I win the match we are in the final. But I am happy that I could win some crucial points and things changed from there,” said Marin after the match.

Before Marin, Sai Praneeth downed Tian Houwei 15-9, 15-8 in just 25 minutes.

Hunters will play the winners of the other semifinal between Ahmedabad Smash Masters and Bengaluru Blasters in the final on Sunday.
