Pak badminton team leaves for Delhi tomorrow

LAHORE: The six-member Pakistan badminton team has been issued visas for tour of India and the team will leave for Delhi tomorrow for participating in the Asian Badminton Championship.

The team will go to India through Wagah.

The Asian Badminton Championship will be played from April 12 to 18 in Delhi.

Pakistan team will be captained by Wajid Ali as Umar Zeeshan, Kashif Sulehri, Rizwan Azam, Sara Khan and Palwasha Bashir are also included in the team.

The Pakistan badminton Federation did not hold training camp for the preparations of the championship and the players practiced individually in their own cities.

No manager or coach has been appointed for the team as only a six-man squad can take part in the event. Thus, maximum players can get exposure due to this decision.

However, Wajid Ali will also perform the duties of manager and coach besides captaining the team.
