This is a very unprofessional thing done by BAI,” Sawant wrote on her twitter handle.Seasoned doubles campaigner Aparna Balan on Tuesday had cried foul after being left out of India’s squad for the Asian Games, saying she and her women’s doubles partner Sruthi KP were “deliberately ignored” despite their consistent performances at the selection tournaments.Also Read: Asian Games Badminton Team Selection: Aparna Balan cries foulSawant also said that the young Indian pair of Rohan Kapoor and Kuhoo Garg, who were ranked 67th in the April 26 World Championship qualification ranking, were selected in their place despite being lower ranked than them in BWF chart at the cut-off date, reports PTI.“Our entry was confirmed by both sides from Malaysia as well as India but BAI withdrew my entry without my permission just to give an lndian pair a chance who is ranked 67 according to the qualification date of World Championships and we were ranked 51 according to World Championships 2018 qualification date.”However, the BAI defended its decision, saying that Sawant’s entry was withdrawn since her partner Yogendran is a Malaysian citizen.“Doubles partner of Prajakta is a Malaysian citizen.
