Indian shuttler Lakshya Sen won the men's singles title at the Bangladesh International Challenge 2019 after registering a straight-game win over Malaysia's Leong Jun Hao in the summit clash here on Sunday. It was also the fifth title of the season for the 18-year-old Indian.

Sen registered a 22-20, 21-18 win over Hao in the final which lasted for 50 minutes.

"Happy to end the year on a winning note with my 5th international title here in Bangladesh!! Hope to continue my good form in the next year 2020. Like to thank all my sponsors @OGQ_India @Herbalifeindia @YonexInd @Sports_PDCSE @ppba @bai_media," Sen tweeted after winning the title.

Sen had won his first title of 2019 at the Belgian International in September before winning the Dutch Open Super 100 and SarrLorLux Super 100 in October. He then went on to claim the Scottish Open crown in November.

Among other Indians, women's doubles pair of Maneesha K and Rutaparna Panda suffered a 20-22, 19-21 defeat to top-seeded Malaysian pair of Tan Pearly Koong Le and Thinaah Muralitharan in the final.
