India’s badminton players chance to earn in lakhs. BUT federation diktat sees them counting losses


Every August since 2011, Indian badminton has thrown up excellent news of medals either at the World Championships or the Olympics.

On Friday, HS Prannoy defeated the mighty Viktor Axelsen to continue the good tradition.
