Chennai: Hyderabad Hunters routed Awadhe Warriors 6-(-1) in a Premier Badminton League (PBL) clash at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium here on Sunday.

South Korean Lee Hyun II made it 2-0 as he ended Parupalli Kashyap's unbeaten run in the PBL with a 13-15, 15-9, 15-14 victory.

From 8-14 in the final game, Kashyap saved six match points but Lee Hyun held his nerve to take the golden point.
