A sudden calf muscle tear having upset his plans to make it to the 2015 year-ending Dubai Super Series finals, India’s most experienced male shuttler, Parupalli Kashyap, is looking forward to the Premier Badminton League to put his game back on track in the Olympic year.
"I had a calf muscle tear on my left leg which happened in the French Open almost two months back. It was a big setback. I was really upset about it. I had a clear cut chance to qualify for the Dubai Super Series finals which I was aiming for the whole year. I wanted to be in the top eight and qualify for Dubai," said Kashyap.
The World No 15 will represent his home town franchise, Hyderabad Hunters, in the PBL commencing today. Saying he did not know why the injury happened, Kashyap said he will take a call on how many of the 11 tournaments to play to qualify for the August Rio Games after PBL.
