    I think there are three things that BWF needs to change:

    1. Service Fault

    This has got to change. It is controversial and very subjective.

    2. Overruling Linesmen

    Hawkeye is too expensive for badminton. I hope TV replay is the best answer.

    3. Mopping Up

    Umpire has too much discretion. Why not permit each player one request (per game) for mop up and/or towel down!

    #2 is worth considering but of course the number of challenges should be limited.

    #1 is fine the way it is and #3 is nonsense. When there is fluid on the court it gets really slippery.
