Arjun Fallary is poised for a triple crown while Yash Kunkalienker, Yasmin Sayed, Sushil Nayak and Rudra Dukle are vying for double crowns each, at the 12th Manohar Dhond Memorial Major Ranking Badminton Tournament, organised in collaboration with Goa Badminton Association and the SAG, at Indoor stadium, Campal. Arjun almost made it into his fourth finals but lost the Under 19 Boys singles narrowly to second-seeded Yash Kunkalienker in a close hard fought match.
