Danny/Chayut from Singapore are a much superior and more powerful pair than Akshay/Pranav. It's no surprise the IND pair lost, really. The seedings don't necessarily reflect the reality.
Yeah I know that was obvious!! But looking at the recent result u can't find a single good performance!!(except one victory in TC)..they are stumbling in WR too!! And much younger and inexperienced pair of mannu/sumeeth is Ind MD#1 this is all coz of them....lack of determination lack of energy lack of participating in various tourneys!!
Only a total of 10 players are allowed to participate from any country. That would generally mean (more so in India's case) 1 pair in each doubles discipline, and 2 players in each singles discipline. IND doesn't have the depth and half-decent quality in any doubles discipline (apart from JG/AP), so for some players it (CWG) will be more of a paid-for holiday.
Meanwhile, clan Karunaratne is keeping the host country's flag flying at this tournament! I hope Dinuka makes it to the finals. That will be a great boost for SL badminton.
