‘This is the greatest chapter in the history of Indian badminton. Prakash Padukone and Pullela Gopichand have won the All England Championship. Sindhu and Sena have won medals at the Olympics and the World Championships. These are all great achievements. But as a team, it has never had such great prestige. If you want to be considered the best in badminton in a country, you have to excel in singles and doubles. That is what has happened now ‘- Vimal Kumar said.
Lakshya Sen and Kidambi Srikanth won the singles while doubles Satvik Sairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty won the doubles. HS Pranoy and MR Arjun were also in the Indian team.
‘There are no words to describe this performance. There has never been such excitement in Indian badminton before. This is similar to the 1983 ODI World Cup cricket victory. It is hoped that this achievement will popularize badminton in India as well as cricket, ”said Vimal Kumar.
