Indian shuttlers Kidambi Srikanth and H.S. Prannoy have slipped three and five places to seventh and 13th spots respectively in the latest BWF world ranking.

Srikanth, who clinched silver at the Commonwealth Games, has not played in any tournament since participating at the Asia championship in April, while Prannoy had decided against defending his US Open title which seemed to have affected their ranking.

In women’s singles, P.V. Sindhu and Saina Nehwal stayed put at No. 3 and No. 10 respectively.

2014 Commonwealth Games gold medallist Parupalli Kashyap, who had reached the finals at US Open last year, crashed out of the top 50, and currently occupies the 51st position.

Former World No. 13 Ajay Jayaram, who had slipped out of the top 100 - the result of a long lay-off following a hamstring injury - was rewarded for his semifinal finish at the US Open. He jumped 39 places to be at the 95th spot.
