It is stories like Shubhankar Dey that make having a league like the Premier Badminton League (PBL) worthwhile.Shubhankar Dey took the court for Bengaluru Blasters at PBL for the very first time and pulled off a huge upset over Chennai Smashers ' Brice Leverdez 15-12, 15-12.

Shubhankar has a few titles to his name on the international circuit, more on Challenger levels, but people had not really seen him in action.So when he turned up on court against France's Leverdez instead of Bengaluru's regular Chong Wei Fang, it was a surprise.

However, as the match progressed, people could only marvel at his court coverage, athleticism and patient display.Despite throwing a couple of smashes at Leverdez, it was evident that Shubhankar was more of a rally player. On that front, Leverdez and Shubhankar were very similar players but the Indian clearly trumped the French.

Shubhankar charged http://www.authenticnikegiantshop.com/Dalvin-Tomlinson-Jersey at Leverdez from the first point itself and it was his accurate drop shots that took the Chennai player by surprise.Shubhankar raced to a big lead and even though Leverdez pulled off a brilliant comeback, the Indian kept his nerves in place and even outwitted Leverdez for a few points.

The second game was far closer and Leverdez was over the surprise element. But Shubhankar began the game with a bullet smash and keeping his game up, went into the break with an 8-5.

Leverdez kept close, kept trying to bridge the gap but his shots hit the net Bryce Petty Authentic Jersey and Shubhankar was just a little bit better on the day.Just like India noticed a jewel like Satwiksairaj Rankireddy at the last season of the PBL, Shubhakar Dey may get his share of glory this season.

With Shubhankar win, Bengaluru close down 3-1, even though they had already lost the tie.Chennai started on a brillaint note by beating Bengaluru Trump match, the men's doubles with Lee Yang and B Sumeeth Reddy emerging victorious 8-15, 15-14, 15-13 over Kim Sa Rang and Mathias Boe.

Chennai continued their surge in the women's singles as well where PV Sindhu proved just too good for Scotland's Kirsty Gilmour.In what was a comfortable victory, Sindhu beat Gilmour Authentic Michael Wilhoite Jersey 15-9, 15-14 to win the tie for Chennai 3-(1).

But Chennai, who were reeling at the bottom of the league table before the match, needed more points and that is exactly what Bengaluru did not let them do.World No.1 and captain of the Bengaluru outfit Viktor Axelsen http://www.officialauthenticbearstore.com/Nike-Connor-Barth-Jersey.html began his team's fightback by winning a close men's singles against Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk.

Tanongsak, who had snapped HS Prannoy's winning streak a few days ago, stretched Axelsen to three games but the Dane eventually won, 15-11, 6-15, 15-9 to get Bengaluru back to number zero.
