B Sai Praneeth upstaged compatriot K Srikanth to clinch the Singapore Open men's singles title, his maiden Super Series trophy today.

Praneeth prevailed 17-21 21-17 21-12 in a 54-minute contest, which was the first all-Indian Super Series final in the history of the game.

The two players dished out an engaging opening game before Praneeth staged a remarkable comeback to dominate the proceedings and emerge a comfortable victor.

Before today, only three nations -- China, Indonesia and Denmark -- had two of their shuttlers playing in finals of a Super Series event.
