The Brothers of Destruction are the new face of Indian doubles.

From the likes of Prakash Padukone and Pullela Gopichand to Jwala Gutta-Ashwini Ponnappa to the likes of PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal, badminton in India has been on the rise every decade. Satwik-Chirag has now taken up the mantle of carrying forward this revolution. From smashing several records and rewriting history, the pair have come far and are the highest-ever ranked doubles pair in the country. Who would have thought this a few years ago?

But Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty made it a reality. Satwik-Chirag has become the first Indian men’s doubles pair to be ranked World No. 1. They have achieved so much in such a short period of time. As of now, they have 8 World Tour titles, 6 International Series/Challenge titles, 1 CWG and 1 Asian Games Gold to their name. They seem far from stopping anytime soon. Also, after their success, India has witnessed so many good double players emerging. They have changed the future of doubles in India.
