If you are paid with ransom amount to play for them and you leave them in the middle for some other reasons , i don't think it will be a good idea to invest such an amount on those players.. Lol.. For a franchise point of view, they want a player to stay with them until that particular tournament finishes. If not, why should they invest?? And also, there are only 6 franchises and only 4 foreign players per team. Here itself there is a constraint involved. This tournament is particularly for indian badminton players to get more exposure towards the game. All questions arises only because of the money involved in this league. Otherwise, nothing arises in anybody's mind(Courtesy: AXIATA CUP, CBSL , Nobody asks about their country players involvement in these leagues). Because of the popularity and experience got from IPL (Indian Premier league -cricket), they have decided to make the sport popular in India in that way. Some of the constraints which were raised by Korea and Japan made the situation impossible for the franchises to pick those players. This is the case. Many young indian players defeated Boonsak in tournaments. Hence, they might have thought better investing over Tin Min Nyugen than investing over Boonsak. These are the reasons for not selecting many of the players from indonesia, japan, korea and china (due to chinese National games). Taufik is exception. Though he is not in form( many junior indian players defeated him in many tournaments) , he is popular here. He is participating in each and every tournament that is happening in India. That may be the reason for his selection.
