Indonesia Open: Sunday was a historic day for Indian badminton. This day brought such a moment that every Indian's chest would swell with pride. This opportunity was given by India's star badminton pair Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty. This couple did the work abroad which no Indian has been able to do till now. The pair won the men's doubles title of Indonesia Open. The pair defeated the Malaysian pair of Aaron Chia and Wooi Yik Yeoh in straight games in the final. With this, the pair of Satwik and Chirag has become the first Indian pair to win the BWF Super 1000 series title.

Obviously, this moment is heart-warming for India and the couple celebrated it in such a way that everyone would remember it. Prior to this, neither in singles nor in doubles did anyone win the BWF Super1000 Super Series title from India. That's why this moment has come for the first time in the history of Indian badminton. That's why the whole country got excited on this victory and the fans sitting in the stadium got excited.

Lehra di t-shirt

After this victory, the happiness of Satwik and Chirag knew no bounds. Both of them celebrated with fun. Chirag reminded the countrymen of Sourav Ganguly and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Remember the moment when Sourav Ganguly waved his T-shirt in Lord's balcony after defeating England in NatWest Trophy. In 2007, Mahendra Singh Dhoni gifted his T-shirt to a child after winning the T20 World Cup. Chirag also took off his T-shirt after this historic victory and threw it towards the spectators sitting in the stands.

The thing was like this because this pair has done the work which no Indian pair could do for 41 years. Before this pair, no Indian pair had even reached the final of Super 1000.

Threw the racket

While Chirag was waving Tirshut on one side, Satwik was dancing. Satvik did not stop here. He went further than this. He threw his racket into the stand. After this both Satwik and Chirag got photographed together and went for the medal ceremony. When both of them were talking to the broadcaster, they were asked that what would we get if we gave T-shirts and rackets to our audience? On this Satvik said that we will give you a party.
