Glasgow: Parupalli Kashyap stood just one win away from winning a historic gold after notching up an energy-sapping three-game victory over England's Rajiv Ouseph but PV Sindhu suffered a heart-breaking loss in the women's semifinal of the 20th Commonwealth Games here on Saturday.

World No. 22 Kashyap played out of his skin to avenge his loss to Ouseph, who had beaten him at the 2010 Delhi Games and also dumped him during the mixed team event at the Emirates Arena here. (Medal tally)
In a gruelling one hour and 23 minute match, Kashyap bounced back from a game down to edge out World No. 26 Ouseph 18-21 21-17, 21-18 and assure himself of at least a silver medal.
