Meanwhile, two of the country's top shuttlers HS Prannoy and B Sai Praneeth have alleged that the Badminton Association of India (BAI) has denied them a chance to participate in the Championships due to some gaffe on the part of BAI.
However, BAI issued a statement to the press yesterday evening denying the allegations. The statement said, based on the email received from Badminton Asia, they were asked to send names of two players each for men and women’s singles. (AIR NEWS)
