Leading Indian shuttlers Parupalli Kashyap and P.V. Sindhu entered the semifinals of the Commonwealth Games in their respective categories at the Emirates Arena here on Friday.
In the absence of top seed Saina Nehwal, No.2 seed Sindhu routed New Zealand's Anna Rankin in straight games in the women's singles quarter-finals to enter the last four in her first appearance at the games.
World No.11 Sindhu notched up a comfortable 21-10, 21-9 win in 24 minutes and will take on Canadian fourth seed Michelle Li in the semis.
Earlier, men's singles second seed Kashyap also had an easy 21-13, 21-14 victory in 38 minutes to proceed to the semis.
The World No.22 had clinched the bronze four years ago in New Delhi.
