" In the third, Kashyap displayed outclassed Ouseph and opened a big lead. At 20-14, the Indian ace thought he had the match won but much to his dismay, the umpire ruled in favour of the Englishman."
Glasgow, Aug 2 - Indian shuttler Parupalli Kashyap reached the 2014 Commonwealth men's singles final with a hard-fought 2-1 win over England's Rajiv Ouseph at the Emirates Arena here Saturday.

After losing the first game Kashyap came back strongly to win the next two games and register a 18-21, 21-17, 21-18 victory in an hour and 23 minutes.

Both players showcased a great touch game but Kashyap's defending abilities and his quickness on the court proved too much for the Englishman to handle.

Kashyap, the 2012 London Olympics quarterfinalist, made one too many unforced errors in the first game giving Ouseph the advantage.

The 27-year-old was much more circumspect in the second and made his English opponent cover a lot of ground, moving the shuttle around brilliantly.

In the third, Kashyap displayed outclassed Ouseph and opened a big lead. At 20-14, the Indian ace thought he had the match won but much to his dismay, the umpire ruled in favour of the Englishman.

There were some nervy moments for Kashyap as Ousef saved four match points but a stinging overhead smash sealed the Indian's berth in the final, which will take place Sunday.
