In the last CWG in India, 2010, India's 4 medals show was rather disappointing, but they are expected to double the medal count in 2014 CWG. ''We are expecting around more than 8-10 medals from our badminton team in Glasgow,'' said Vijay Sinha, Hony. General Secretary, Badminton Association of India.
''We can win medals in various events such as Men's singles, women singles and doubles, mixed doubles etc. But, only time will tell.'' said Sinha. India would be missing out on the services of Sania Nehwal , who opted out of the event, as she is yet to recover from her foot blisters. Sinha further added, ''One would hope Sindhu to win medals for India in absence of Sania Nehwal.''
Sindhu is a young talented Indian superstar, who has proved herself
in the world circuit, winning gold in 2013 Malaysian Open Grand Prix,
Macau Open badminton Championship and a bronze medal in BWF World
Championship. It is time for her to prove her mettle and shine in
such a global stage as the Commonwealth Games, which would do her
confidence a world of good.
