Malaysia's men’s doubles pair, Choong Hon Jian and Haikal Nazri, are on a winning streak in India.

Just a week after securing their first title at the Syed Modi International, they continued their success by claiming the Indian Masters crown. Ranked 93rd initially, their recent victory boosted them to 69th globally.

The duo, who joined forces in August, displayed consistency by defeating Taiwan’s Lin Bing-wei and Su Ching-heng in the final 21-17 23-21. Despite a slow start, they've reached three finals together, showing promise for higher-level tournaments next year. With their recent success, Hon Jian-Haikal is expected to climb up to 52nd in the world rankings.

In mixed doubles, Hon Jian reached the semi-finals with Go Pei Kee but lost to Denmark’s Mads Vestergaard and Christine Busch.
