BAI Election Trial: Saina Nehwal blasts Badminton Association of India, ‘Looks like they don’t want me in CWG, Asian Games team’

Saina Nehwal BAI ExplosionWhy check? The governing body had called for a selection trial on April 2 to select the Indian team.

Steps are being taken to select the team for the big-ticket event. These include the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, the Asian Games and the Thomas Cup in Hangzhou, and the Uber Cup in Bangkok from 8 to 15 May.

  • Saina, a former World No. 1, said she informed BAI of her decision to avoid trial.
  • The trial starts at IG Stadium on Friday
  • According to the former World Top 10 player, this does not mean that he was not interested in participating in big events.
  • BAI has excluded players from the top 15 of the BWF rankings from the trial.
  • Shuttlers between 16 and 50 in the latest World Rankings published on March 29 will have to participate in the trial to be selected in the team.

“I was surprised to see all the articles about my CWG title and not wanting to defend my Asiad medal. I am not taking part in the trial because I have just returned from a 3 week European event and the Asian Championships are on schedule. “ Saina tweeted.

“Within 2 weeks, as a senior player, it is impossible to participate non-stop in a back-to-back event and it is risky for injury, such short notice is not possible. I reported it to BAI but got no response from them. Looks like they’re happy to get me out of CWG n Asiad. “

BAI Selection Trial: Saina question why the trial is being run? Saina also questioned the logic of the trial at this juncture.

“I hope we have a better idea of ​​how to manage a schedule and not announce events with 10 days notice. I am currently ranked 23rd in the world and I almost lost to the No. 1 Akan in the world in All England. A rate open in India and BAI tried to pull me down. Disgusting. “

Saina, a bronze medalist at the London Olympics, competed in the German Open (March 8-13), the All England Championship (March 16-20) and the Swiss Open (March 22-27) before retiring from the Korean Open (April 5-10).

Saina has been battling injury and poor form for the past few years, which has pushed her to 23rd place in the rankings but she showed signs of returning to form during the three-match series against Akane Yamaguchi at this year’s All England Championships.

In the current crop of women singles players, Malvika Bansod, Akashi Kashyap, Asmita Chaliha and Anupama Upadhyay are in good form but none of them have lost to the top international stars on the world stage.

Saina returned to the circuit this year after recovering from a groin and knee injury but did not have the desired results as her India Open campaign ended in the second round.

After a gap of a few weeks, he played three events last month – the German Open, the All England and the Swiss Open – where he failed to advance to the second round.
