CWG 2022: Badminton Association of India to conduct practice for CWG-bound shuttlers in Hyderabad from July 18 to 24

CWG 2022

The entire 10-member Indian badminton contingent, including men and women, will practice together under the watchful eyes of the coaches before they leave for Birmingham in the wee hours of July 25 to participate in the biggest multi-sporting event of the year.

“It’s very important to bring together all the players ahead of the Commonwealth Games. Such training sessions always help teams to get into the rhythm before any big event and also plan and work on various strategies as a team,” said Sanjay Mishra, Secretary of Badminton Association of India in a statement.

In the last CWG held in Gold Coast in 2018, India clinched the maiden mixed team gold medal and finished wih six medals–two gold, three silver and one bronze medal. It also included the historic men’s doubles silver by Shetty and Rankireddy.

“We are the defending champions and our objective will be to continue to play with the same zeal and momentum in Birmingham. We have a very strong team and the players have experience and ability. I’m confident they will put on their best show in Birmingham,” Mishra added.

PV Sindhu

Two-time Olympics medallist PV Sindhu will lead the Indian team in the women’s section at the Birmingham Games along with players like Aakarshi Kashyap, Treesa Jolly, Gayatri P, and Ashwini Ponappa. The men’s team, on the other hand, will consist of 2021 World Championships silver medallist Kidambi Srikanth, bronze medallist Lakshya Sen, B Sumeeth Reddy and star doubles pair of Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy.

The 22nd edition of the Commonwealth Games will take place from July 28 to August 8.
