thank you all for all the great suggestions.
And all the congratulations...
yes my partner and i were very happy and the opponents were in shock... and yes it has given us a termendous confidece.
we discussed that we as a team should always have a plan A, B and C... if plan A is not working we should be able to switch to Plan B within a game!!! not after thinking and strategising for a week!!!
so maybe we you guys can shed some light on that... i am sure good teams have that... and i am sure there must ways to practice that.
sincere thanks to everyone.

I just lost a competition yesterday. The main reason is my partner kept lifting. He said the opponents' defences were too strong. He wasn't patient enough.
I couldn't impose my strategy because he's the better player (skillwise). He doesn't listen to me. He likes to partner with me because he says we have good rotation/chemistry on court. The problem is, he doesn't believe that doubles is an attacking game, thus, the lift. The worst part is, I'm being blamed for our loss.

But we just try to adjust the games as best we can.
If your partner in the tournament is your fixed partner, you probably should try to get advice from a third person to objectively analyze your game and give advice on who's making the mistake or who should be changing their game.
I find it's pretty impossible to be in the game yourself and comment on the game. Very easily becomes a blaming game.

that is teh point... that the team shoud be able to think right there and then and switch to plan B ... not analyse after the game... its difficult to read the game when you are in the middle of it... it has to be practiced from before...

Mann, congratulations passing this hurdle. But bear in mind-A bigger challenge is waiting for you-That is a highly aggressive attacking pair. They are even tougher nuts to crack.
All these strategies and tips will do no good-Only improving on the basics will help. No plan A B or C. Everything will boil down to who has better skills and badminton mind.
There are only for shot options for you to play at any given time (By Jake Downey) & you want to select the most attacking shot possible. The options are,
- A winning shot-Say net kill or smash from mid court
- An attempted winner or building shot-Net tumble or smash from back court
- A shot which you opponents can not do much with-High clear, drive or push
- A shot that will keep you in the rally- When you have no choice but to lift, otherwise you lose the rally immediately. Eg. Return to a net tumble or good smash.
Shot option 4 is the least preferred which will hand over the stick to opposition asking them to beat you! & sure, they will luv to. Hence you increase the speed and skills so that you are not forced to clear many times.
Hope this helps
All the best
