In the China Masters 2023 final held on November 26, India’s top men’s doubles duo, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty, faced a tough match against second-seeded Liang Wei Keng and Wang Chang from China. The intense match concluded with a 19-21, 21-18, 21-19 victory for the Chinese pair, securing the first men’s doubles title for China in the China Masters in eight years.

Despite trailing 1-8 in the decisive game, the Indian pair showcased remarkable resilience, fighting back to save six championship points from 13-20 to narrow the score to 19-20. However, Liang and Wang managed to regain their composure just in time to secure the win.
