| Updated: January 6, 2024 17:57

The Adani Group has announced its support for the young chess sensation, Grandmaster R Praggnanandhaa. Gautam Adani, Chairman of the Adani Group, expressed his pride in supporting the 18-year-old Praggnanandhaa, lauding his rapid progress in the sport as an inspiration to all Indians.

Praggnanandhaa, who is keen on ensuring India’s success on the global stage, expressed his gratitude to the Adani Group for their trust in his abilities. “Whenever I play, my sole aim is to win more laurels for the nation,” he said.

In 2023, Praggnanandhaa made history by becoming the world’s youngest chess player to reach the World Cup final, a feat only previously achieved by Indian chess legend Viswanathan Anand. The Chennai-based teenager, known for his love of mathematics and penchant for unwinding with TV and Tamil music, also won a silver medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games in 2023.

Praggnanandhaa’s journey in chess began at the tender age of 5, leading to his distinction as India’s youngest and the then world’s second-youngest Grandmaster at age 12 in 2018. He is currently the fifth-youngest person ever to achieve the title of Grandmaster, following Abhimanyu Mishra, Sergey Karjakin, Gukesh D, and Javokhir Sindarov.

Adding to the family’s list of achievements, Praggnanandhaa’s elder sister, R. Vaishali, is also a Grandmaster, making them the world’s first-ever brother-sister Grandmaster duo.
