WORLD No. 1 men’s singles shuttler Lee Chong Wei thought his first round exit in the Indian Open would be met with sympathy.
But it also drew flak.
But his excuse has only led to many unanswered questions. Where was the team chaperone? Why did he eat outside food in the first place?
Usually, the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) have a chaperone to look after their players. Unfortunately, the team to India was not accompanied by a team manager.
It seems that none of the state badminton presidents was available for the “holiday” trip.
