New Delhi: PV Sindhu will be participating in the Uber Cup, Badminton Association of India (BAI) Himanta Biswa Sarma said on Monday.
Sindhu had decided to opt out of the tournament due to personal reasons, but did a U-turn at the request of Sarma.
“I have requested @Pvsindhu1 to join the team as we have a favourable draw and have the best chance to take a shot at a medal at the #ThomasUberCup. She has agreed and will prepone her family function so that she can be part of the Indian Team and play for the country @BAI_Media,” Sarma tweeted.
BAI President @himantabiswa spoke with @Pvsindhu1 and she has consented her availability and will be part of the Indian Team🇮🇳 going for #ThomasUberCup #TeamIndiaFirst #Badminton @bwfmedia https://t.co/N77P2jwORh
