Badminton's greatest show, the Yonex All England Championships 2019, returns to Arena Birmingham from today.  A challenging draw stands in the way of India. 

But top shuttlers PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal will fancy their chances of ending a nearly two-decade-old title jinx at the tournament. Only the top 32 in the Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings qualify for the tournament. 


Out of them, only three Indians have been seeded -- the third being Kidambi Srikanth (seeded seventh) in the men's event. In women's doubles, the pair of Ashwini Ponnapa & N Sikki Reddy and the duo of Meghana Jakkampudi and Poorvisha S Ram are in the fray. In men's doubles, former National champion Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy will play in the first round.
