Meanwhile, the match has been rescheduled for evening.
Surprisingly, the wooden surface of the badminton court went down after few matches on Thursday. Seeing this, Saina expressed disappointment over the issue and informed members of the Assam Badminton Association about the condition of the court.
“After few matches, the wooden surface has gone little down.” Saina said while talking to the media. She further added that she doesn’t want to take further risk as there are more matches to be played hence she complained about the issue to the authorities. The badminton committee has assured Saina that the issue will be sorted out by evening.
