Rule Query - Touching the net
If team A hit the shuttlecock and team b are running in to meet it - the shuttlecock then hits the net and drops down on the side of team A but Team B then hit the net, i.e. after the net has been hit by the shuttlecock, then whose point is it!?

After the shuttle hits the net and starts to fall on Team A's side of the court, it is no longer "in play". Team B will not be called for a fault for touching the net, since the shuttle is not in play, therefore Team B will receive the point.
A shuttle is not in play when:
(15.1) it strikes the net or post and starts to fall towards the surface of the court on the strikerís side of the net;

What about if team B hit the net at the same time that shuttle is on the chord of the net? Chances will be 50/50 falling over to other side.
