The success of the Indian badminton team has managed to hide one fact that may turn out to be a problem in the future – it does not have a specialist doubles coach.Ajay Kanwar, Vijaydeep Singh and Archana Deodhar, who were contracted till the Commonwealth Games ( CWG), put in their papers just before the commencement of the Games.Sources close to the coaches told Mail Today that they resigned owing to the fact that they didn’t receive any tickets for the CWG. What is also compounding matters is the fact that Atiq Johari, one of the two Indonesian coaches attached with the Indian team, is also going back to his homeland at the end of this year.C Punniah Choudhary, secretary of the Badminton Association of India ( BAI), said that the terms of the three coaches were till the CWG. ” These three coaches, who are also in the national coaching panel, were employed to help out the Indian shuttlers till the CWG. Now that the CWG is over, their tenure is over,” he said, sidestepping the fact that the coaches had resigned prior to the mega event in the Capital.But Choudhary admitted that there was a shortage of doubles coaches in the country. ” There is no denying the fact that we are facing a paucity of doubles coaches. But then, things will be back to normal in a couple of months,” he said.Choudhary also said that though Johari will not be back, the other Indonesian coach assisting the team will be here for another one year. ” The other Indonesian coach, Hadi, is still there. He will be helping out the Indian shuttlers for another year. In fact, Hadi has been of great help to our shuttlers for the last two years,” he said.advertisementChoudhary also said that the BAI was in the process of shortlisting a new panel of coaches, which it hopes will help out the shuttlers till the London Olympics. ” Right now, we are working on preparing a list of coaches whom we can employ till the London Olympics,” he said.However, he did not disclose the names of the coaches. ” The shortlisting of the coaches is in a preliminary stage. We will come out with the names once things are finalised,” he said.SAINA NOT FULLY FIT YETMeanwhile, Saina Nehwal has still not recovered from the ankle injury that kept her out of the Indian Open.” I am just doing weights and other mild exercises.
