Indian shuttlers, including Olympic medallist Saina Nehwal, on Friday questioned the rationale behind scheduling 22 event in just five months in a revised BWF calender, saying the "stupid" planning will increase the injury risk.
The Badminton World Federastion (BWF) unveiled a revised international calendar to salvage the remainder of the season, disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Twenty two events in 5 months is extremely tough on the players. Firstly, there is a question mark on international guidelines and how quarantine will happen. Don't know how they came up with this when the travel restrictions are still in place. We all want to get back to sport but there are lot of question mark now, we haven't yet started practice yet," Kashyap told PTI.
