Kamal to lead India

Before Delhi stages the Commonwealth Games next year, this is considered to be one of the most important events to test the paddlers’ preparations.

Apart from regulars like Sourav Chakraborty, former India number one Poulomi Ghatak and her doubles partner Mouma Das, the selectors have also decided to try some young hands in Jubin Kumar, Pooja Sahasrabhudhe and Divya Deshpande.

Indian men are clubbed with Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Jordan in Group B of the First Division, while their women counterparts would play Nepal, Laos and Kazakhstan in Group D. The tournament, which would be held at the 4,000-seater Uttar Pradesh Badminton Academy in Gomti Nagar, will have eight categories, including two team events, singles, doubles and mixed doubles.
