Joshana Chinnappa won the Asian Championship beating Dipika Pallikal. Great achievement. Saurav Ghosal was runner up in the men's section. Apparently the last Indian to reach the final was Misha Grewal.

How come Joshna, ranked 12, was seeded 3rd but her 14th ranked opponent was seeded 2nd?

The seedings of the draw decide on the rankings while sign-up at the deadline.

Joshna won the battle between India's top 2 players ... Dipika started well and won the first game but afterward Joshna recovered ... She won next three games in a well-contested match playing important points better than the opponent and keeping her nerve ... Next, she is facing talented Egyptian girl, Nouran Gohar.
