    Well, after some thought, I can see some merit in not drinking cold drinks (or indeed eating cold food e.g. ice cream) after an injury. probably only to do with soft tissue like muscles, tendons, ligaments (maybe also cuts).

    Depending on the type of injury, you either want to apply ice externally to prevent swelling. The body reduces blood flow to the affected area.
    Or you want to apply heat to increase blood flow to speed up damage repair.

    I guess that if you dump a load of cold material into your stomach, your body will give priority to getting a stable core temperature for your vital organs. Maybe blood flow is diverted from the extremities to boost the temperature in your chest and abdomen. So if you've twisted your ankle, you don't want your body igoring it while it tries to stabilise your core temperature.

    During and after badminton, I personally like my water to be around room temperature. Maybe that's the reason behind it.

    What I learnt is, after every game your heart will be beating in a face pace. Drinking cold water will send the heart beat pace down in an instant and might cause heart attack.

    But from what I read on the internet, cold water helps in sore muscle healing and also increases body metabolism. 20minutes soak will be fine.
