With the Premier Badminton League all set to kick-start on January 2nd, India top shuttler P. V. Sindhu today said the new format of 15-point games will make the ties interesting and keep the shuttlers on their toes. “The League will be interesting as a few new rules that are introduced will keep us on our toes. At no point can we leave our guards down,” Sindhu said.

“Also a 15 point game means that we have to keep our hold on the game all throughout, not allowing the other to run away with it. So yes it will be an exciting time during the League as each day can see a new team ruling the points table.” Gearing up to give her best for Chennai Smashers, Sindhu will have some big names like Sony Dwi Kuncoro, Simon Santoso, Pranaav Jerry Chopra, Chris Adcock to name a few.

The Premier Badminton League will see six franchisees — Delhi Acers, Hyderabad Hunters, Bengaluru Top Guns, Chennai Smashers, Mumbai Rockets and Awadhe Warriors — competing for top honours.

The opening day of the League will witness Awadhe Warriors taking on Mumbai Rockets in Mumbai.
