Ace Indian shuttler Kidambi Srikanth produced a rich vein of form as he swept aside Tzu Wei Wang of Chinese Taipei in straight games to book his place in the semi-finals of the Indonesia Super Series Premier here on Friday.

The 24-year-old remained dominant throughout the match as he registered an easy 21-15, 21-14 win over Wei Wang in a one-sided quarterfinal clash that lasted just 37 minutes.

Srikanth has now set up a clash against second-seed Son Wan Ho of Korea for a place in the summit showdown.

In another men's singles clash, HS Prannoy also made it to the last-four after surviving scare against eight-seed Chen Long of China.

After comfortably winning the first game, Prannoy went down in the second before he rebounded strongly to post a 21-18,16-21,21-19 win over his Chinese opponent in a thrilling encounter that lasted one hour and 15 minutes.

Prannoy will now lock horns with either Japan's Kazumasa Sakai or England's Rajiv Ouseph in the semi-finals.
