Mumbai: Anand Pawar, ranked 43rd in the world and a member of the Indian Sudirman Cup team, has expressed his disappointment at not being bought during Monday's Indian Badminton League auctions.
"Sad and unhappy to see that I haven't been picked in the Indian Badminton League auction even after making a semi-final of the India Super Series event a few months back and also being part of the Indian Team for the Sudirman Cup. Could it just be bad luck or...?," he has written on his Facebook page after being snubbed at the auction held in New Delhi.
"Well, it's hard to think of next year when 13 Indian men's singles players have been sold and I'm the only one who hasn't!" Pawar added.
