Ace shuttler Jwala Gutta said on Wednesday that India is in dire need of second formidable doubles pair after her and Ashwini Ponnappa in order to pose serious challenge at the team championships.
“We have long been talking about this, the country needs a second women’s doubles pair after me and Ashwini. The pair who can substitute us in tough times and also be talented enough to win medals for India,” said Jwala on the sidelines of the Indian School Badminton League in Delhi on Wednesday.
Jwala’s comments came after India’s debacle in the recently concluded Uber Cup in Japan, where duo of Jwala-Ashwini failed after putting up a brave fight. The country could not find another doubles combo for the semi-finals against Japan when the tie went to the deciding fifth match. And the Indian Contingent had no choice but to field the top singles players in Saina Nehwal and P V Sindhu.
