Kusharjanto is a doubles specialist who achieved his greatest success in mixed doubles. Between 1994 and 2002 he won numerous international mixed doubles titles, the majority of them with Minarti Timur. These included the Thailand (1994), Indonesia (1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001), Singapore (1995, 1998), Malaysia (1996, 1998, 2000), and Chinese Taipei (2002) Opens; the Badminton World Cup (1995), the World Badminton Grand Prix (1995), the Southeast Asian Games (1995), and the Badminton Asia Championships (1996). Though victories in badminton's three most prestigious events for individual players, the Olympics, the All England Championships, and the World Championships, eluded Kusharjanto, he and Timur came close in all three with a runner-up finish at the 1997 All Englands, a bronze medal at the 1997 World Championships in Glasgow, and a silver medal at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney. Though only occasionally chosen by the Indonesian Badminton Association to play international events in men's doubles, Kusharjanto has won some, most notably the Badminton Asia Championships with Bambang Suprianto in 2001 and with Sigit Budiarto in 2004. As a member of Indonesia's 2002 Thomas Cup team he helped his country to capture its thirteenth world team title by winning his championship round doubles match with Halim Haryanto.
