Jakarta: Indian shuttlers Ajay Jayaram and RMV Gurusaidutt reached the pre quarter-finals of the Indonesian Super Series Premier but it turned out to be a bad day in office for world number 10 Parupalli Kashyap as he crashed out of the men's singles competition, here on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old Kashyap was not in his elements and was completely outclassed by former world number six Sho Sasaki of Japan 7-21 8-21 in his campaign opener, which lasted just over half an hour.

However, World number 28 Jayaram and Gurusaidutt notched up contrasting victories later in the day to keep India afloat in the men's singles event.
